Insect swarms

Image 2 of 12


A plague of mosquitoes swarms over a city in central China after a sudden drop in temperatures saw millions of the critters take to the skies in November 2008. Workers spent days clearing up carcasses after the flying pests invaded Wuhan in Hubei Province and died within days. Many terrified residents were too scared to leave their homes when they saw huge clouds of the insects overhead.
