WHAT GOES WITH MOSQUITOES?
Those doggone, pesky mosquitoes,
Do they fit environmental credoes…
Because of those bums,
The bloodsuckers drill through a Speedo!
On the tundra, fifty percent,
Of life–without mosquitoes–will have went…
They make easy food
With a good attitude,
Of major consequence.
Reindeer migration routes
Affected by mosquito soups…
Avoiding the buzz
Places need time to recoup.
Mosquitoes clean dirty water
Then feed fish and bugs as they oughter…
Many birds eat them too,
And “swallow” a few*
On the wing near the surface of water.
Females go after the blood,
To nourish their eggs in the flood…
Males in the sector
Survive on nectar,
For which pollination is good.
* swallows…are one of the several bird types that eat mosquitoes “on the fly”–while flying.
