Mosquitoes Swarm Northern Michigan

People want to be outside enjoying the beautiful Northern Michigan weather but a snowy winter and wet spring are causing one of the worst mosquito seasons in a long time.

There is more standing water in the region than we have seen in a long time, perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes.

Spraying companies like Mosquito Squad say their phones have been ringing off the hook as they work to keep these swarms at bay.

Trying as hard as they can to make the outdoors bearable until mother nature helps by drying things out.

9&10 News’ Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jacob Johnson followed the Mosquito Squad today and have more details.
