hi greg, In answer to your question I don`t personally know much about the asian tiger mosquito but from searching on the web I found many sites with information about the mosquito. One site said that "The Asian Tiger Mosquito is more aggressive than the Yellow Fever Mosquito, seeks hosts over a broader range of human activity, and has a bite that results in considerably more irritation." and since mosquito bites are generally itchy and irritating I can assume that this particular mosquito bite probably does itch for a week. Here are some websites you might want to check out for more information about the mosquito. Tiger Mosquito at Rutges University

I hope this is useful to you.
