Gallinipper : a huge mosquito with painful bite comes back to florida

Last summer, the Tropical Storm Debby hit Florida and the torrential waters spread a multitude of mosquitoes eggs like, for example, the gallinipper.
This mosquito is native to florida and is a HUGE mosquito (6-7 mm), and has a painful bite…
Next summer, if it rains a lot, this mosquito could come back because Debby brought a good breeding ground for the gallinipper !
