FACT OF THE DAY:  

Did you know, there are no mosquitoes in Iceland?

Due to colder weather and fewer ponds, the country does not have a mosquito population….except for one that has been in a jar of alcohol at the Icelandic Institute of Natural History since the early 1980’s, when a University of Iceland biologist caught it inside an airplane! “In Greenland and Northern Scandinavia, the [mosquito] pupa hibernates beneath ice during the winter, and hatches as a fly as soon as the ice melts. This happens in spring, as polar winters are continuous. Icelandic winters are variable. There can be a sudden rise in temperature in the middle of winter, with a thaw, then the temperature will drop again.

Under these conditions the pupa would hatch. The mosquito would then need to find prey from which to suck blood, then it would need several days for the eggs to mature, to meet a mate and lay the eggs in a pond or marsh. Changes in climate in Iceland are so rapid that the mosquito does not have sufficient time to complete its lifecycle. Under these conditions the pupa would not be mature when temperatures dropped again and ice formed on the ponds.”
