and survive for 24 hours.
That would be 4.16 cubic millimeters per mosquito!

These findings are due to testing of packing methods for shipping mosquitos around for disease prevention (like malaria which is mosquito transmitted.

They fit em all in by only using Sea Mosquitoes.

@Dave They tend to get their diseases from Carriers, which those Sea Mosquitoes were prone to head for when sighted...

All kinds of nasty diseases: Shingles (with stuff on em), Swabbies, Airdales and worst of all, Brass of all stripes.

Personally I served on a bubble-boat babysitter (Sub tender, USS Proteus AS-19, now scrap) and so stayed in port most of the time. Due to the types of work I did, aside from Damage Control Team was welder, asbestos removal and various radiation work. So while I have to deal with problems resulting from a munched spine, Via the Navy, as a benefit: I do not need a nightlight!

While we learned how to pack tight, I do not think I can compete with the Mosquito as far as light baggage or personal space needed!

Thank You Dave!
