I came to know this today. I killed one of the most dangerous species in this world. These take more lives than any other form. By now, if you are intelligent enough, you must have guessed the name. The great species with wings and a needle nose to bit. Yes they are mosquitoes. Don’t get surprised if you are reading this for the first time. This is a link for some statistics.
Usually I am a non violent person. I don’t like to kill anyone for any reason it may be. Just as an example. If an ant bites me I don’t kill that ant. I pick it and throw it away. But this mosquito made me go crazy. It kept biting me and the animal in me (Monkey of course) ,which was sleeping with peace of mind for a long time, woke up. I slapped myself and there it was. The act of bravery.
Monsoon season is the season of mosquitoes. You find many patients with dengui, Malaria and chikungunia. Mosquitoes are dangerous because the number of peoples dieing from the said disease is very high. If it’s monsoon season at your place then make sure you take precautions not to allow the reproduction of mosquitoes.
Make sure there is nothing outside your house which will hold water. Most common things holding water are which then act as reproduction house for mosquitoes are
-> Old tyres
-> Your or someones old shoes. May be new ones also.
-> Empty cans. Probably of beer or soft drink
-> Pothole which may store water for a longer time.
So the next time you see this species kill it. Feel proud to be killing this mosquito.
