Culex pipiens (male).

There are still a lot of Culex pipiens flying about in Hoo Wood, and on Wilden Marsh. The males don’t bite, but the females do. I think it’s this mosquito’s bite is responsible for the huge swellings that appears on my exposed skin.

  1. I’ve also heard (I don’t know if it’s true) that male mosquitoes make the high-pitched buzzing sound, and that the female is silent. Stands to reason, since the females are the ones that bite — they can get in their surprise attack, lol!
