Record Mosquitos in Arizona
According to surveys, Arizona is having record numbers of mosquitos in Maricopa due to the heavy rains.
Maricopa County officials say they have received more than 10,000 complaints this year, which is almost double the rate for 2013, the Associated Press reports.
“We’ve been seeing a lot of mosquitoes, a majority of them are floodwater mosquitoes. Those are the ones that have been generating most of the calls,” said County Environmental Services Department spokesman Johnny Dilone.
