Reading Post 33352 asking for an effective mosquito repellant reminded me of that little known fact.

Somewhere around dusk all flies perform an amazing trick and turn into mozzies!

How else do we explain why at night there are heaps of mozzies and no flies, yet through the day usually the opposite.

Maybe an entomologist site member may be able to explain just how they transform?

Whilst not an entomologist I have done some marine biology and think I can explain this phenomenon.

All insects are charged with one quest in their short lives, short compared to ours that is. Their quest is "To Acquire Numerous Names Of Young PeopleIn Several States Of Fitness Freshness and Help Interact Nationally During Every Roster" or ANNOY PI$$ OFF and HINDER

To achieve this quest they must carry out these tasks across a 24 hour period. They must rest, but The Quest is foremost.

To this end they have developed extensive communication networks and structures that allow them to change over with another insect species, equally committed to The Quest, on a 12 hour shift arrangement, sort of like house swapping but there is no vacuuming required for the dwelling is merely a rest and recuperation device to fit them for the next stint at seeking The Quest.

Nearing the end of their shift they utilise an advanced proximity sensory mode whereby they can change over with other insects kitted for application to The Quest, and fitted with required sensors, hence, flies being day Questers, change over with mozzies as night Questers, their unique skills fitting them for the task and situational application.

For insects The Quest is foremost in their being, not affected by demographic but characterised by a polymorphic illusion that we see as the 12 hour shft changeover.

Indeed their application to The Quest is admirable.
