I hear “baby mosquito” a lot and must explain that there is no such thing – mosquitoes hatch fully grown from larvae. I think alot of people assume that if it flies and bites it must be a mosquito. There are alot more biting insects than a mosquito and we can deal with them – we just need all the information as they are not all the same.
