A hungry mosquito spots and follows a man on his way home. The mosquito slips into the room where the man is sleeping, and gets ready for a meal. His first attempts startle the man and wake him up, but the mosquito is very persistent.

"DIR: Winsor McCay SUMMARY: A large mosquito feeds persistently on a man as he tries to sleep. WHY IT'S HERE: Winsor McCay's follow-up to the popular 'Little Nemo' was based on another of his comic strips, 'Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend', an inventive strip in which different characters experienced vivid nightmares as a result of eating before bedtime. 'How a Mosquito Operates' retains '...Rarebit Fiend's nightmarish imagery as a giant mosquito sucks the blood of a troubled man trying to sleep."
