Expect to see more mosquitoes

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Although Hurricane Irene is gone, it's bringing us something else that can be very annoying.

You can expect to see more mosquitoes.

The storm's rains filled low-lying areas, and water can be sitting in boats, a bucket in your yard, or even your kid's toys.

According to the Times-Dispatch, many eggs were already laid in dry places.

Now they can hatch because they are wet, so expect to see more bugs in about two weeks.
