Rain from Debby creates mosquito breeding ground

By

These insects now have more places to lay their eggs because of all the stagnant water Debby’s rainfall left in the region. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Nickelle Smith reports on the severity of mosquitoes in the area as they pose a dangerous threat to public health.
