Warm Winter Could Cause Increase in Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are out for blood in Central Kentucky earlier and in mightier form this summer. While some experts are predicting this summer to be one of the worst for mosquitoes in decades, Grayson Brown, professor of entomology at the University of Kentucky, said there's no way of knowing until summer is in full swing. The life span of a mosquito is relatively short, a few months at most, but mosquitoes have been building up their numbers since March and will be noticeable in the upcoming months.
