A sissy! I was once dying of thirst and hunger for several hours because I could not take my mosquito net off and I lost my way in swamps because I could not see the sun through the dense cloud of mosquitoes. That was somewhere NW of Wawa, Ontario. [slight exaggeration :-)]
Mosquito is a national bird of Manitoba. They say that their mosquitos are so big that they can carry away a small child.
One of the world's largest statues of a mosquito is a roadside attraction in Komarno, Manitoba, the Mosquito Capital of Canada. That's what they say, but there are many other pretenders to the first prize: one is in Siberia, one in Yellowknife NWT, Canada, etc.
"Komarno" stems from the Ukrainian (Polish as well) word "komar" for mosquito. [This part of Canada was settled in 19th c. by many Ukrainians.] Sculpted in 1984, it is made of steel and has a wingspan of 15 feet. It's also a weathervane, swivelling in the wind.
