FLORENCE, Mass. (WWLP) - Unfortunately for most of us, mosquito populations are likely to grow quickly since we've been so damp.
"I stay indoors more than most people I think, because of bugs," said Elaine Whitlock of Northampton.
Whatever you do to avoid being bitten by bugs, get ready to do a whole lot more of it.
Mosquitoes thrive in standing water and warm temperatures. With six inches of rain in the past two weeks, they've clearly got the water they need.
American Pest Solutions bug expert Robert Russell says we won't notice the extra mosquitoes right away, but soon.
"It depends on the temperatures because everything works well at higher temperatures, but in seven to fourteen days you're going to see these broods pop out as adults and they're going to be out looking for blood," says Russell based in Springfield.
Mosquitoes love puddles, ponds, lakes and damp forests. for people living near these areas you're probably dealing with enough of them as it is.
"It is loaded, it is loaded, you breathe the mosquitoes they're all over you and people are worried about disease and just annoyance," said Tryna Hope of Northampton.
One thing that could slow mosquito reproduction is the cooler nighttime temperatures we've had lately, but if we get into the 80s soon...you can expect to be swatting much more.
Robert Russell also recommends cleaning out your gutters, which can be a place for mosquitoes to breed.
