The Maryland Department of Agriculture says…mosquitos really are worse this summer.
Dan Schamberger, an environmental specialist with the department, says that the abundance of rainfall has produced a large population across the Eastern Shore.
And he tells the Salisbury Daily Times that they are aggressive biters.
Despite the mosquito upsurge, so far Maryland has yet to confirm any vases of West Nile virus.
Meanwhile, to combat the insects state officials say they are using the regular methods of mosquito control such as spraying and using larvicide.
