Mosquito That Doesn't Bite

Mosquito That Doesn't Bite

It's hard to believe that there are any good mosquitoes out there.

There may be one good one, though. Not only does it not bite, but it also eats the larvae of bad mosquitoes!

Meet Toxorhynchites also known as a mosquito hawk. 

Strange that it can be one of the largest mosquitoes in existence, but not one of the most painful. Interestingly, the oil from the sassafras tree can be used as a mosquito repellant. Look for the sassafras tree in our tree nursery.
