The adaptability of some animals is surprising. In addition, some of them take full advantage of the consequences of human action, such as seagulls and rats. The same can be said of mosquitoes. It was known that mosquitoes need stagnant waters, lagoons, ponds, lakes, etc. for eggs to spawn and reproduce.
Researchers at the University of Québec have found that the old tires they left are unbeatable places for mosquito breeding. The water accumulated in the rains inside the tires is highly appreciated by mosquitoes for their laying and growth of the larvae. For some animals human neglect is more beneficial than harm.
