More interesting - why is someone even looking at the mosquito GI tract? 
What happens in there that we need to know about?  I guess for all the 
diseases those filthy beasts carry - they must harbor viruses and bacteria 
somewhere.   Did you know that mosquitos did not exist in Hawaii until a 
little more than 100 years ago?  Durn Westerners brought them in the 
barrels of drinking water they carried on their ships.   Welcome to 
paradise.   Oh - they also brought measles.  Thanks a lot.

Re: [Histonet] Mosquito GI Tract

lol...I wanted to say the same thing...and how in the world can you even 
see it when you section it? How do you stain it without losing it from the 

slide? Is there really enough surface area for it to adhere and withstand 
washing? ...and it's ALMOST Friday...!
