MOSQUITOES IN POPULAR CULTURE – AND MEDIA. YES, LEAVE IT TO OHDEER TO THINK OF SUCH A THING

ohDEER knows our adversaries – deer, mosquitoes, and ticks – inside and out.

We are the leader in all natural deer, mosquito, and tick control.

A primary reason we are so good at what we do is because we study and test and develop, and adjust, and constantly look for better – and always all natural – substances and solutions to keep the deer and mosquitoes and ticks away from you and your property.

We also study and practice and evaluate ways to apply solutions so that they best keep the critters under control.

And, you know, we are so in to what we do that our attention is grabbed with incidences of … for example …mosquitoes … that would probably not be of much interest to most other people.

Take how the name “mosquito” shows up in media and culture – and is part of our literacy.

The Mosquito Coast, a major motion picture, which premiered in 1986, and was based on the award winningnovel of the same name, by Paul Theroux, published in 1981.

Some serious Hollywood talent starred in the film, including Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, and River Phoenix. The movie initially didn’t meet with much favor from the critics, but as the years went on, it received better critical response.

Please click here to be taken to the original trailer for the movie.

There is the 1995 film Mosquito – promoted with the marketing tagline, “Millions of Years of Evolution Have Just Become Mankind’s Worst Nightmare.”

Hmm. We could see that.

Anyway, if you click here you will be taken to the trailer of Mosquito, and you will quickly conclude that you are watching an intro to a movie that is about as “B” as B movies get.

There is Mosquito Squadron a British war film released in 1969, in which central action is a squadron of Royal Air Force de Havilland Mosquito fighter aircraft attacking German V-1 bombers during the summer of 1944.

And some more books.

Why Mosquitoes Buzz In People’s Ears: A West African Tale, by Verne Aardema, with illustrations by Leo Dillon and Diane Dillon, published in 1992, won the Randolph Caldecott Medal, which the American Library Association confers annually to honor the most distinguished picture book for children.

William Faulkner was not yet a literary giant when his second novel, Mosquitoes,was published in 1927. Mosquitoes is a satiric novel, and as for its connection to mosquitoes, well, the tie in is that a good portion of the plot takes place in southeastern Louisiana, a mosquito haven.

****

Now, really, to think that mosquitoes could inspire such creativity.

Then, again, ohDEER sees it. We really do.
