Have you been feasted on lately? Go outside and you may hear them buzzing in your ear: Mosquitoes.
They're common in South Florida, but after all the rain we've had lately, they are particularly bad right now.
But fear no more, the cavalry has arrived. Area officials say they're working on controlling the pesky problem.
Tuesday morning, NBC Miami followed a Broward County Mosquito Control worker as he sprayed a Miramar community. They're responding to more calls now due to a recent increase in rain.
Yellow lights flashing and pesticide being released into the air means Broward crews are fighting back. They get anywhere from 500 to 700 calls a day regarding mosquito complaints, making the problem the worst in recent years.
"If [residents] are out these times mosquitoes are bad, dress accordingly with proper clothes, cover arms and legs and also wear repellent that has a percentage of deet in it," says Joe Marhefka with Broward Mosquito Control.
Miami-Dade residents are also getting help from the buzz. County leaders are beginning aerial sprays Tuesday evening starting at Homestead Air Rescue Base and throughout the county.
To report a mosquito problem in Miami-Dade, call 311. To report a problem in Broward, call 954-765-4062.
