Big Slow Dumb Mosquitoes

A colleague asked me this week if I had been bitten by any of those overwintering big slow dumb mosquitoes (they lumber along like a loaded Airbus, and are easy to swat), that show up before the snow is even gone.  I told her that I had not but I hadn't been in the woods much yet.  I was wrong, because with the warm temperatures today at 16 C, my crowd of big slow dumb mosquitoes was out and after me tonight when I was outside.  I've learned this particular crop doesn't seem too mean much for the up coming summer as they seem to be more residual from last year.  Grizzly
