What is the American Giant Mosquito?


In comparison to other members of the animal world, the American Giant Mosquito may not be that big. However, at 4-5 times the size of the average mosquito, the American Giant Mosquito has the propensity to alarm when landing on its prey.

The good news is at the American Giant Mosquito is not known to carry any harmful communicable diseases. The less pleasant news about this large, bloodsucking insect is that it has the capacity to bite through clothing and fur. For reasons explained in this brief video clip, the Giant Mosquito is only active following major storms, during which it collects a great deal of water and can swell to several times its pre-storm size.

The American Giant Mosquito hasn’t made its way everywhere in the United States, but it is already a force to be reckoned with in Weston, Pinecrest, Boca Raton, and Coral Gables.
