Wichita Falls, TX -
While the recent rains provided a big boost to our lake levels and rivers, the standing water left behind is only giving mosquitoes the opportunity to breed.
Residents in Texoma have found themselves slapping, swatting, and spraying to keep the bugs away.
Gina Blackerby and Francis Duncan both live in Wichita County. Their homes were not affected by the Wichita River rising but the recent rain has brought them another problem.
"Lots of big mosquitoes," said Gina Blackerby.
The month of May showered the city with the most rain on record. Susan Morris, Environmental Administrator with the Wichita County Wichita Falls Public Health District said standing water left behind is only making it a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
