How high can a mosquitoes fly, above ground?

I disagree with the post above. I do not know for sure at what elevation they can fly, but I live is Seoul, South Korea and we have some killer mosquitoes. I assume that they do not fly at very high elevations likely to the wind speed at higher altitudes. The mosquito is not a heavy bodied insect and finds it difficult to fly in even a mild breeze. It is the same concept of why you don’t see many insects on islands because it is difficult for them to fly due to the constant wind speed. Also there are more foods sources for the mosquito on the ground as opposed to in the air. They also prefer areas with dense vegetation. I would say that it is same to assume that they fly higher than 30 feet and this is not a restriction, just where the better overall conditions exist.
