(CBS News) There's a nasty mosquito invading the U.S. that is sure to take a bite out of your outdoor summer plans. The insect is called the Asian tiger mosquito, and it has a blood-lust for humans but will also attack dogs, cats, birds and other animals.

Unlike other mosquitoes that tend to only come out at certain times, the Asian-tiger variety will bite all day long, making it hard to avoid the bug. Their eggs are also much stronger than the average mosquito and are tough enough to survive the cold winter.

The insect is particularly effective at spreading illness, and Conlon said that these bugs are known to be infected with as many as 30 known diseases in a laboratory, including West Nile virus and Dengue fever. They have been found to spread six-to-seven diseases worldwide and transmit five within the United States.
