Unwanted Hitchhikers

The New Zealand Herald is reporting that 2 exotic species of mosquito were discovered Tuesday on a ship at port in Auckland. Larvae and pupae were found in tires being used to secure a piece of equipment (talk about a thorough check!). The ship, which last docked in American Samoa, was treated with a control agent in the area where the mosquitos were found. The exact species of mosquito have yet to be determined.
