The other day while talking with a neighbor, I was warned about "el mosquito tigre." That night I told my husband that "there are mosquitos during the summer and I guess they are quite ferocious because they say they are like tigers." Well, looks like I better enroll in my Spanish refresher course sooner rather than later. It turns out that the type of mosquito my neighbor was talking about, was in fact "el mosquito tigre." (AKA: The Asian Tiger Mosquito or Aedes albopictus)
