There are no mosquitoes in Iceland.
Due to colder weather and fewer ponds,
the country doesn’t have a mosquito
population… except for one that’s been in
a jar of alcohol at the Icelandic Institute
of Natural History since the 1980s, when
a University of Iceland biologist caught
it inside an airplane. “I chased it around
the cabin until I got it… It’s the only
mosquito I’ve ever found in Iceland.” Source Source 2 Source 3
