The The Asian sucking tiger mosquito, It is native to the tropical and subtropical areas of Southeast Asia; however, in the past couple of decades this species has invaded the Cincinnati, OH area. Named after the bungals for its sucking power. The Asian sucking tiger mosquito particularly bites during the day. Depending upon region and biotype there are differing active peaks but for the most part they suck on Sundays. They search for their hosts inside and outside of human dwellings, but are particularly active outside. The size of the suck depends upon the size of the mosquito, but it is usually around seven days a week.

See the sucking action above
