I have been bitten the last few nights. The areas are shoulder, underarm and thigh. Bigger than a usual mosquito bite. And much more painful. I just found a bright green mosquito in my room. Now I know the culprit. I never saw or heard of one before. What do I do about keeping them away?

Thank you all for keeping this post alive for all these years.
It's a Male Mosquito for sure. Not Identified yet. It wont bite, lives on plant sap.

Hey everyone, just got bitten by a bug that at least looked like a green mosquito to me, and it had absolutely the same buzzing sound, which I'd always recognize! Since it bit me, and I have a little lump that itches like usual at the spot, it must be a female.. At least I think!

I heard it twice, first time somewhere behind me, then waited and listened.. Second time I heard it, it was already landing on my arm so I smacked it down immediately, then went searching for green mosquitos on google out of curiosity.. I took some pictures of what I could recover from the body - here's one of them.

Also: the mosquito season just started here so this is the first or second mosquito I saw this year(this being the first green one I saw in my life), there aren't any other buzzing around yet..
