"Mosquito Eaters"


I thought those huge bugs all over my house were what they are called, mosquito eaters.

Turns out...that's a slang term. They are really crane flies and the adults don't eat anything at all.

So much for my theory that I like them because they kill mosquitoes. Can we kill all of them now???

a slang term?!!?!?! I've ALWAYS heard they're mosquito eaters and that because they eat mosquitos we should be nice to them. They're really just big, gross bugs?! That sucks!!!!

They are just big bugs, that actually dont eat at all, so at least you wont have to worry about them biting you. They live just long enough to breed and die.

What a life!
