All About Aedes Mosquito - Culex-Pipiens
Our mosquito's itching to come over and play. She can be there by dusk.
There are about 3,000 species of mosquito, but culex pipiens is the most common. It is found almost all over the world, except in Antarctica.
Spanish for "little fly," mosquitoes beat their wings between 300 and 600 times per second. The unnerving sound they create differs from species to species, and listening for the right note helps male and female mosquitoes coordinate their social lives to find suitable mates!
But only female mosquitoes bite. Their eggs need the protein in blood to help develop. While culex pipiens females will happily snack on human blood, they tend to feed on birds – which implicates them in the transmission of the West Nile virus.
The actual sting of a mosquito is rarely painful, and it is seldom even detected. However, the saliva injected to stop blood from clotting provokes the aggravating skin inflammation and itching associated with a bite. Calamine lotions, and other creams, can help soothe the pain.
Of course, wearing longs pants and shirts, particularly at dawn and dusk, can help avoid bites in the first place. Mosquitoes are extremely attracted to the carbon dioxide you exhale, and they can detect it up to 75 feet away – so you can also try holding your breath! Better yet, try repellents, particularly ones that contain diethyltoluamide (DEET), picaridin, or lemon eucalyptus. She might just take the hint.
This place is awesome. Great products fair pricing and fast shipping. Would totally recommend.

The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
