Tomorrow morning we’ll publish the answer in the comment section of this post.
The African malaria mosquitoes generally bite late at night or
during early morning, between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
I have absolutely no clue about African mosquito activity. Let’s just make that clear first of all.
However, from my experience living in New Orleans where we have plenty of mosquitos year-round in some of the boggier areas, I’ve found that people are more likely to get bitten in the evening or at night. Not sure why, but they seem to be a bit more active then.
So, if it’s at all similar in Africa, chances are the answer is the same: evening/night.
(Hence the mosquito nets for the beds provided by the Malaria Intervention Fund?)
(The server didn’t like my two-word answer: “too short”!)
Okay, the malaria-infected mosquitos bite are out at night.
I’m guessing at night and that’s why sleeping under mosquito nets are so important.
during the rainy season, b/c they breed in water.
Sometimes I’m amazed that anyone ever let me teach an English class. I meant, of course, that the malaria-infected mosquitos bite at night.
I agree with Vicki because she is always correct.
During the night
And the answer is …
In the middle of the night.
The African malaria mosquitoes generally bite late at night or during early morning, between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
