Mosquitos. No one likes them and many of us, myself included, think they’re evil. LOL! We all know they can take the fun out of spring and summer events. But I don’t think any of us have ever seen anything like this.

Residents of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia are bravely venturing outdoors to record seemingly infinite mosquitoes swarming the eastern coast. They’re actually seeing a “mosquito tornado” and it looks like something out of a horror movie.

In a nightmarish turn of events, a video obtained by East2West news shows millions of mosquitoes amass and swirl to form tornadic pillars. “Sharknado” isn’t real but this is. And just watching it makes me itchy!

From afar, you would guess it’s simply dirt and debris being swept up in a storm, but up-close footage reveals the apocalyptic reality. Entomologists in the region have assured residents that the phenomenon is part of mosquitoes’ mating ritual and that humans are not at risk. I’m sure they know way more than me but no way in hell would I be walking outside seeing this!

Heads up, when you watch this you’re going to want to grab a Benadryl or some anti-itch cream. Note to self, don’t visit this place!
