    So I was just chilling and watching some videos, when I saw a mosquito just buzz around the laptop and then vanish around in the back. This led me to think that what are the possibilities of the mosquito getting into my MBP vents in the back? Since its blowing hot air out, the mosquito wouldn't try and go in or is it attracted by the hot air?

    I think the mosquito would fry if it gets into your MBP :)

    haha well maybe.

    I just want to have a serious discussion about the possibility of bugs making their way in through the vents.

    I can imagine smaller bugs getting in through ports etc but I don't know if they can actually make it in via the vents.

    Exaclty :) I also remember this thread. He posted some photos with a lot of bugs in his mac. One mosquito is ok compared to that :)

    EDIT: Here is the thread MBP bugs. Literally. There are insects in my laptop.

    Yes I saw that thread. I don't think they made it in through the vents. Maybe the speaker grills?

    The speaker holes are super small. If I was a bug, I would go through the keyboard :)

    its much more likely the mosquito was blown out of your sight by the vent instead of flying against the wind into its own doom

    Bad news. I actually saw a little tick-like bug crawl in. I couldn't stop it. Ugh. I am thinking of opening the bottom.

    I would get some insect traps and keep them around your MBP. Though I would definitely want to also open your MBP up and clean it.

    my friends 13" mbp had a small insect it was not that big, centimeter in size kind of looke dlike a spec of dust but it was behind the actual glass of the display. not sure how it happened as it was a newly purchased mbp and there are not much out in his area as far as small insects go. it did actually eventually get out.

    but i suppose it is possible.
