    So I went out last night. NYC was warm last night but not warm enough for bugs. I went to a restaurant, to Pinkberry and came home. In the restaurant there was a little bug that was bothering be but I didn’t know what it was. I woke up this morning with multiple mosquito bites. One of them is on my penis. Its winter! Aren’t all the mosquitoes supposed to be dead?!!!!! icon_evil.gif

    Probably not a mosquito, but finger nail polish works for most insect bites. It stops the itching.

    This was a flying insect, or insects? Biting midges (aka sandflies) fly, bite and leave itchy red welts, much like mosquitos, and also will crawl up inside clothing to bite.

    They wouldn't be active outdoors during a NYC winter, but they can survive & breed indoors year-round if they have access to certain kinds of plant potting material, and other damp areas. Did this place have live potted plants? They might also seek a damp basement, and then fly out vents or open doors into the dining area.

    I wouldn't expect mosquitos in the winter, unless they have access to standing water, again perhaps in a warm basement. Was this thing very small, and hard to identify? That could very well be a midge. And I'd avoid that place in the future, since midges, like mosquitos, can carry diseases.

    We've got these little brown pine bugs that get into the house in the winter. (If you smash one, it smells like pine oil.) They're sluggish, flat, and colored like the floor so you never see the small ones. But if you roll over on one, they bite and leave a welt that swells up, itches, oozes, and lasts a week. You never even feel the bite. I've got one on the bottom of my foot right now. Fuckers.

    i would suspect bed bugs, they feel exactly like mosquito bites and usually happen multiple times

    I agree. Bearing in mind the NYC bedbug epidemic, it seems the most likely explanation.

    I've got an HoMO.

    You're lucky it wasn't a spider bite.
    Sometimes those cause necrosis.

    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.

    Maybe it's bed bugs? I hear they are taking over all major cities these days!

    Ummm. How the hell did you get a mosquito bite on your dick during the winter int he city when they aren't even in season? That just sounds fishy and I think you should probably have that looked at again instead of just assuming. that's a simple mosquito bite.

    It sounds more like a bedbug, spider or tick bite.

    Mosquitos shouldn't be able to come from your plants or trees, because they need standing water to breed, that cycle taking several days. That's why I wondered about something else, perhaps the midge, whose bite appears virtually identical to a mosquito on the surface, and which only needs dampness to hatch.

    And I've had tiny flying insects suddenly all over the house from potted plants, when I brought in new potting soil that I guess must have contained their eggs. Or brought home a new house plant, at all times of the year, in warm climates & cold. That was my first thought with the OP, a restaurant that had indoor live plants in soil.

    Outside of a brown recluse bite that's very uncommon.
