The Mosquito flies around town.
The Mosquito can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Mosquitoes can easily be found flying around on warm summer nights looking for targets. Only the females feed on blood, and when they do so, they also inject saliva. The saliva is actually what causes the annoying itchy feeling, rather than the bite itself. Mosquitoes detect body heat, sweat, and carbon dioxide, so they are drawn to exercising humans."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a mosquito! Why you be hatin', mosquito?!"
