With gorgeous summer weather comes one of nature's most inexplicably trollish creations: the mosquito. And thanks to some horrifying new developments, this summer is going to be loaded with thousands of giant, ultra-deadly super mosquitoes hellbent on sticking you full of more dirty needles than a dumpster dive behind a methadone clinic.
4 There's Going to Be a Shit-Ton of Them
We had to blur out the graphic mosquito orgy going on in this photo.
Wichita, Kansas, has already seen a 227 percent jump in their mosquito population, and over in central New York, they're expecting a surge in the repellent airborne disease fairies as soon as the summer heat kicks in. Mobile County recently had a chicken test positive for mosquito-borne equine encephalitis (because Alabama is in the habit of testing chickens for such things), and the Boston area just found its first West Nile-carrying mosquito. So we're off to an itchy start already.
