‘Aggressive, monstrous’ mosquitoes 3 times bigger than normal swarm North Carolina after Florence

NORTH CAROLINA – In the wake of Hurricane Florence, North Carolina has become home to some very large mosquitoes being described as “aggressive, monstrous pests with stripes on their legs” by USA Today.

North Carolina State University entomologist Michael Waldvogel told USA Today the large pests are called “Gallinippers” or “Psorophora ciliata.”

They can be three times as large as average mosquitoes. The floodwaters after Hurricane Florence can cause dormant eggs to hatch, spiking their population into the billions.

North Carolina resident Cassie Vadovsky posted a video to Facebook showing a swarm of the blood-thirsty insects outside her car at her home.
