dekiruman saidmy primary care physician happens to be my aunt lol.....I lucked out. But you shouldn't have to wait that long, thats fucked up.
That really is remarkable for a NYC restaurant in February, and with the winter it's been having, tons of snow & cold. I would DEFINITELY avoid that place in the future, a possible pest hole.
Given that the adult phase for a mosquito is only a few weeks duration in which to lay their eggs before they die, this can't have been some leftover from last summer, that managed to hide inside from the cold. In fact, the average total life cycle for all 4 stages of development is only a month total, both male & female.
Therefore, that mosquito bred somewhere nearby very recently, in relative warmth, and in water standing stagnant for a number of days, the only way they can reproduce. What does that tell you? Now granted, the eggs may have been laid earlier in the late Summer or Fall, because eggs can survive for months, I believe up to 9 or so, the method by which the species can return in the Spring after the cold of Winter.
BTW, I Googled some of this info, plus other bits I knew from my Army days, as part of the things we had to know about living in the field.
