It is believed that the in the 1980's, this type of mosquito was accidentally imported from Japan in a shipment of tires. Then, the tires were shipped all over the eastern part of the US, but mainly in North Carolina. The Asian Tiger mosquito (Aedes lbopictus) is also known as the forest day mosquito. Luckily (for the rest of the US, anyway) these insects are weak flyers.
These flying insects are rather small, measuring in length at about 1/8 of an inch. Its body is black with tiny white stripes painted on the legs and body. It has a unique single white stripe that stretches from the center of the head to the back. It definitely isn't the booming roars of these mosquitoes that give them this powerful name, but the white stripes.
