Albany- In the past few weeks, South Georgia has gotten a lot of rain, and the rain has been creating an inviting environment mosquitoes.

Dougherty County Environmental Control Manager, Donell Mathis, says the additional standing water is causing mosquitoes to breed and reproduce at a faster rate.

Mathis says he has four crews on the road each day to spray for mosquitoes. As spraying continues, he says you should notice a difference.

Mathis adds, "People will notice the mosquitoes will die down. We will just keep spraying trying to make things better."

You need to try to get rid of standing water around your home. It will help keep the number of mosquitoes down.
