HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) - Experts are predicting mosquitos will be more of a problem this year. They say its all due to the early arrival of warm weather.
Carlos Garcia, an entomologist with Michigan State University, says mosquitos often hide in wooded areas during the winter and they typically don't reappear until May or June.
"Their biology starts moving faster, their metabolism is accelerating faster," says Garcia.
But already this March, Rebekah Brown has heard horror stories from her daughter.
"She said she got eaten alive. I was like 'No, no definitely not'. Sure enough mosquito bites were all over,"says Brown.
At Quality Car Wash in Holland the signs of an early insect season were all over Tom Bell's windshield.
"Mosquitos, bugs, got a few splatters on there," says Bell.
Experts recommend wearing longer clothing especially in the evening hours and removing any standing water near the house.
