Black flying mosquito looking insect landed on my hand while i was sat in my garden. I live in salford/manchester in england. i didnt think mosquitos could survive over here
Signature: suprise me
This sure looks like a Mosquito to us. Did it bite? The Mosquito is number four on the NHS site 12 UK Insects and Bugs that Bit or Sting. Additionally, BBC News has a posting entitled Is the Mosquito Menace Growing in the UK?
Yes it bit me as i took a picture of it. I had a small red lump for around 2 weeks
That sounds like exactly the reaction we would expect from a Mosquito bite. You failed to mention if it itched.
