Mosquitoes Eating Fruit (Part 1 – Jackfruit)

In or new Thai house, we’ve noticed mosquitoes sucking moisture out of sponges around the sink area, or from damp towels or rags. I suppose this is normal behavior, but we never really noticed it until we lived in this house. The past year, we’ve started to notice them sucking on various fruits we leave out on the counters. I’ve decided to start recording these images because I feel there’s a greatly underestimated demand for knowing what mosquitoes that aren’t sucking blood are sucking.
In this case, it was jackfruit.

  1. Please tell me the secret of peeling and taking out the seed pods from jackfruit and not getting that super sticky resin on your hands. It’s difficult to wash off. Halp!

  2. I just asked a coworker about this a couple weeks ago! Apparently, even some of the fruit vendors wear disposable gloves when de-pitting jackfruit with a fruit knife because the resin gets everywhere.
