Christos Quinnol, Second Life asked:
Are mosquitoes equally bothersome all over the world or are there some areas, except the Arctic or Antarctic that get off a bit easier?
We put this question to James Logan:
There’s lots of different species of mosquitoes and they are found right across the world. Whether they’re bothersome or not: I think they are bothersome because they all bite. If they bite humans then clearly there’s a problem but in terms of diseases they don’t spread diseases everywhere. For example, in the UK we don’t currently have diseases spread by mosquitoes.
