South Florida fears worst year for mosquitoes on record – Dallas News | myFOXdfw.com

Dr. Thomas Breaud, who monitors and studies the bugs in Orange County, said the population had been kept down because of a recent drought, but the situation could change rapidly.

He said, “A lot of times people will say we had a mild winter — this is ‘X’ therefore we’re going to have ‘Y’ and that’s not always the case. What I can tell you is a mild winter certainly didn’t help us.”

Breaud warned the mosquitoes could be carrying disease, including encephalitis and West Nile virus.
