A team of scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered how small insects cope with rain. The study found that when a mosquito is hit by a raindrop, its body puts up little resistance. The mosquito simply combines wit the droplet and begins to fall. Water repellent hairs then enable the mosquito to free itself from the droplet before it hits the ground. SOURCES: BBC
