Monster Mosquitoes to Invade Florida

(Lee County, FL) Experts say Southwest Florida will have to battle giant mosquitoes this summer.

The extra-large insects are about the size of a quarter and pack a painful bite.

Scientists say the bugs exist in Florida but are usually found close to farms.

They’re blaming standing water left by a tropical storm last year for the upcoming invasion.

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in wet places and they expect a large batch of insects to hatch this summer.

The only way to fight back is to where mosquito repellent.
