- A tiny pest insect. It uses its long nose to suck blood from its host.
Mosquitos are hateable vermin found in all non-freezing biomes. They will give unhappy thoughts to dwarves who absolutely detest mosquitos when they encounter them. While the female caste can suck blood, this does not currently affect dwarves in any way. All mosquitos possess Legendary skill in climbing.
Some dwarves like mosquitos for their high-pitched buzz and their ability to feast on blood.
1 kph Mosquitos were sponsored by the generous contributions of the Bay 12 community. [CREATURE:MOSQUITO] [DESCRIPTION:A tiny pest insect.
