Mosquitoes can live on nectar and plant sugars and be totally fine. But since female mosquitoes are jerks, they use blood as protein for their eggs. That means every time you get bitten, you HELP MAKE MORE MOSQUITOES. Ugh.
16. And now the Asian Tiger mosquito, an even more awful breed, is spreading around the U.S.
Black-and-white Tiger mosquitoes are more aggressive than the garden variety, and will attack you during the day as well as dusk and dawn. Their eggs can also survive a cold winter.

MAYBE WITH LASERS.
