Species such as Bezzia nobilis within the family Ceratopogonidae have been observed in experiments to prey upon mosquito larvae. In the months between the foundation of 2TAF and its duties from D day onwards, vital training was interspersed with attacks on V-1 flying bomb launch sites. Blind mosquitoes typically live for a few days, but they breed quickly and numbers increase exponentially, leading to an infestation.

    In the whole midgut, activity rises from a baseline of approximately three enzyme units EU per midgut to a maximum of 12 EU at 30 hours after the blood meal, subsequently falling to baseline levels by 60 hours. Peter is then bitten by a Tsetse fly that sends him into a deep sleep, however, he wakes up in time to avoid the stampede of Rhinoceros. Their lifespans depend on temperature, humidity, and their ability to successfully obtain a blood meal while avoiding host defenses and predators. In the months between the foundation of 2TAF and its duties from D day onwards, vital training was interspersed with attacks on V-1 flying bomb launch sites.
