WASHINGTON (AP) – The tiny mosquito all too often has man on the run. And this summer it seems even worse than usual.

Experts say it’s been a buggier-than-normal summer in many places around the U.S. because of a combination of drought, heavy rain and heat. The University of Florida’s Jonathan Day says the Southeast is getting hit with three years’ worth of bugs in one summer.

Parts of Connecticut this summer reported traps showing mosquito levels double the normal levels. In Minnesota last month, they were triple the average. And central California topped them with five times the recent average.
