Culex

“Nymph, in thy (whining) orisons be all my sins remembered.”

It was a tough night on the skeeter front. Approximately eight bites amongst the two of us, and so far three mosquitoes, including this early afternoon kill. Hard to tell here, but the eyes have a blue-green iridescence to them. Possibly the southern house mosquito, Culex quinquefasciatus (brought north by the warming climate?). Definitely not an Asian Tiger.
