Mosquitos at BLT - Update

I posted a thread on our last trip about the mosquitos at Bay Lake Tower. We did see them again last week on our way back from Fort Wilderness. The boat captain told us that these are male mosquitos and that only the females bite. They began swarming at dusk and it lasted for a couple of hours, and although they were annoying, none of us were bitten. They were not nearly as bad as they were back in May, maybe because the weather was cooler.

Glad that your mosquito experience was better this time around.

But one does have to wonder... if there are only the male "non-biting" mosquitoes, where are all the baby mosquitoes coming from...
