Hey Bombers fans, thanks for stopping by! Read below to find out more about me, keep in touch and even have me at your next birthday party!


Species: Mosquito

Height/Weight: 188cm / 0.0025 grams (avg. weight of a mosquito)

Origin of Name: I was named after the famous ‘Mosquito Fleet’ a premiership-winning Essendon side in 1923 that featured a number of small, fast players.

Habitat: I live at Windy Hill, but am often spotted at Etihad Stadium, the MCG and Auskicks in northwest Melbourne

I am a friendly and energetic insect! Here are some tips if you encounter me in the wild:

·         I am especially attracted to EFC colours
·         Secure all loose items (including cell phones, jewellery and cameras)
