Man Has Mosquito On The Run

RALEIGH, NC—As of 11:42 p.m. Tuesday, area resident Derek Moore had reportedly cornered the mosquito that had been harassing him all evening, effectively neutralizing the insect and regaining the strategic advantage. "I have him right where I want him," Moore said of the 2.4 mg adult mosquito, whose extremely sensitive antennal hairs can detect the slightest movement in air pressure, allowing it to evade predators. "He knows I almost got him that last time, and he's been pretty quiet for a while now. He'll think twice before coming at me again." The mosquito was reportedly waiting until Moore fell asleep to bite the man repeatedly, suck his blood, and permanently incapacitate him with malarial parasites.
