Being bitten by an infected mosquito will not necessarily make you sick. Most people who are infected with WNV have no symptoms or experience only mild illness. If illness were to occur, it would occur within 3-15 days of being bitten by an infected mosquito.
Female mosquitoes bite people and animals because they need the protein found in blood to help develop their eggs. Mosquitoes are attracted to people by skin odors and carbon dioxide from breath. Many repellents contain a chemical, N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), which repels the mosquito, making the person unattractive for feeding. DEET does not kill mosquitoes; it just makes them unable to locate us.

Although staph can live on surfaces for days to weeks, it doesn’t mean that it will make a person sick. Staph has to get off the surface and onto someone’s skin, where the organism may or may not survive due to the presence of competing organisms. Even if it survives on someone’s skin, it may simply live on the skin and not cause an infection. In order to cause an infection there has to be a break in the integrity of the skin.

The highly domestic mosquito Aedes aegypti rests indoors, in closets and other dark places. Outside it rests where it is cool and shaded.

A Mosquito Magnet ® is a commercial biting insect abatement system. The device uses a standard 20-pound tank of propane to emit a warm, moist stream of carbon dioxide, heat, octenol attractant (registered EPA pesticide) and moisture that pests mistake for the exhaled breath of their warm-blooded prey. As the insects approach the source, they are vacuumed into the net where they dehydrate and die. In 4-6 weeks, the breeding cycle is interrupted as egg-laying females are destroyed.

In very general terms, the larger a bird is, the longer its life expectancy. For small birds, such as migratory songbirds (warblers, vireos, etc.) the average life expectancy may be as little as two years. This short life expectancy is due to the many hazards birds face from birth: predators, disease, accidents, migration, starvation, habitat loss, and hunting, among others. Some individual birds have survived surprisingly long, including a cardinal (13.
Kefir Yoghurt for Life - Frequently Asked Questions
The grains or plant live, with proper care as long as their owners. Kefir cultures reproduce themselves and do not know a physical death. We recommend making one litre (1½ pints) each time, though quantities of up to 2 litres is possible. Clean the Kefir grains daily by placing them in a sieve then allow medium flow of water to wash through the grains.
Why do mosquitoes bite?
The female mosquito is attracted to a host by scent (including CO2), moisture, temperature, color, movement, and for some species, sound. There are an estimated 400 chemicals emitted from human skin and about 100 volatile compounds in each human breath that mosquitoes can detect. The combination and amount of chemicals given off is believed to be why some people are more readily bitten than other people.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about locusts
A Desert Locust lives a total of about three to five months although this is extremely variable and depends mostly on weather and ecological conditions. The life cycle comprises three stages: egg, hopper and adult. Eggs hatch in about two weeks (the range is 10-65 days), hoppers develop in five to six stages over a period of about 30-40 days, and adults mature in about three weeks to nine months but more frequently from two to four months.

There is no set time period for how long a FeLV+ cat will live. One person on the internet said they had a cat which lived for 20 years with the virus, while others have given dates as long as 10 or 12 years, although these are probably extremes. I have not found any truly long-term studies to document, but it seems that of the studies done, 83% of FeLV+ cats do not live beyond 4 years. (Hardy, et al 1980).

Washed sperm is supposed to only live for 6-12 hours, but sometimes as long as 24 -- not nearly as long as sperm can live in fertile cervical mucus (sperm can live up to 5 days in fertile mucus, 2-3 days being pretty common). This is why timing is so important.
