The Tiger Mosquito is spreading North

In this article there is a map of the départements affected


The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

I HATE all mosquitoes. And especially these ones.
Most creatures have a positive aspect, but not mosquitoes.
Another result of global warming.

Just to put into perspective the risk of infection...France is registering a couple or under 10 cases a year ( and not every year) of dengue fever. Each year, about 390 million cases occur worldwide. (WHO).

Thank you, Norman. I shall probably be ticked off for saying it is another illegal immigrant!

By the way, is it the single engined 1st WW version or the twin engined. 2WW version?

You will be ticked off by me for bringing the subject up on this thread.

Bet somewhere along the line one of your ancestors was illegal and imprisoned.

Probably pretty much all Americans/ UKers are or have ancestors who have been.






My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

You really do have an uncanny knack for ‘flattening’ a thread, don’t you?

What started as Norman’s ‘info for everybody’ post, has descended in to an attack, albeit (for you) in quite a mild one.

You just don’t get it do you? Your contributions are usually quite unpleasant and confrontational. Differences of opinion can be expressed in a much more civilised manner than I’ve ever heard you express them. Your ‘skill’ is that you never go so much over the top as to get yourself banned - although I really do wonder whether there’s any moderation on here these days.

As I'm in dept 24 which appears red I gather we are at risk?

What can we do to protect ourselves? Our garden has loads of citronella.

It is odd that the remedy is not out there first, mugs. Maybe talk to the commune if, big IF, they know what is going on.
