about

There are 3500 species of mosquito, and several families of insects which look very similar to mosquitos. Of these only a couple hundred species drink blood and of those only the females, who need the blood meal
to produce eggs. Adults live for about a week. Mosquito larvae are a significant source of biomass providing food for many aquatic creatures. Adults provide food for many birds. However, mosquitos perform very few unique roles in the ecosystem, with the most popular likely cocoa pollination upon which chocolate is dependent. Mosquitos are a very significant vector for disease. They have been introduced worldwide through human development and transit and thrive in proximity to human developments given the large number of artificial water containers (discarded plastic or glass). Their lack of uniqueness and danger has prompted a number of scientists to call for their eradication. The lesson of the mosquito is a warning about our knowledge of the world and ability to control it.

lyrics

mosquito a song about mosquitos

why do you circle around me
thorn in my side as you pierce my flesh
sucking the life out of my veins
leaving disease leaving me deranged
and i wish i could eradicate you
i wish that you would cease to exist
i wish that i could put something in your place
without you the world would be better than this

but i know,
i know that i need you
i know that you give just as much life
as you seem to take,
to take for your own self
oh jesus help me see the world

i wake up just having fallen asleep
to the itch just beneath that one piece of skin
that i just can’t reach, i can’t reach that deep
and i wonder how i could begin
to really work for a way to eradicate you
to find how how you could cease to exist
i’m sure that something else would take your place
and the world would be much better than this

then i wonder
wonder if i need you
not for your food or your pollination
but because you take
you take for your own self
exactly this kind of temptation

then i know
i know that i need you
i know that you give just as much life
as you seem to take,
to take for your own self
oh jesus help me see the world
