WASHINGTON (August 20, 2013)--Experts say it's been a buggier-than-normal summer in many places around the U.S. because of a combination of drought, heavy rain and heat.
The Southeast is dealing with three years' worth of bugs in just one summer, Jonathan Day of the University of Florida said.
Parts of Connecticut this summer reported that data from traps show mosquito levels are double the normal levels.
In Minnesota last month, they were triple the average.
And in central California the count was five times the recent average.
