QuoteMay zompopos are from the ant family and we can notice it in their shape, but unlike them, they have wings. This species comes out when the first heavy rains occur, because for the males and the virgin queens it is the opportunity to mate.
QuoteCastes of ants: the minimum workers (2 mm in length), the middle workers (10 mm in length), the major workers or soldiers (20 mm in length, with a much larger head), the males, and the queens.

QuoteMedicine Man came out in 1992 and was directed by John McTiernan who also directed Predator and The Hunt for Red October. Connery plays Dr. Robert Campbell a researcher working deep in the Amazon jungle who stumbles across a cure for the plague of the 20th century, cancer.

QuoteI consider it a good first step, but I'd like to see the vector(s) eliminated. I realize that the mosquitoes in question provide a niche in the ecosystem, but unless the bloodsuckers are eliminated, they'll just spread other diseases, like zika, dengue fever, etc. I've seen where animals have died, unable to get to safety before they were sufficiently drained of blood. I'd bet money that if those mosquitoes were eliminated, some other insect would fill that niche. Bugs are quick that way.

Quote from: Asmodean on September 16, 2022, 12:11:08 PM... The Asmo is all for genocide when it comes to bitey things. When sufficiently genocided, other bitey things usually come crawling into the now-empty niche to sneak up on a unsuspecting Asmo and bite Him right in the middle of His divine Butt Cheek, which is not only unacceptable, but probably amounts to sexual harassment!
