Dougherty County-- Here in Georgia, the latest side effect of Hurricane Ivan is a new crop of mosquitoes. You may have even noticed this week, the mosquitoes seem to be a little larger, that's because they are.
Albany sprayed for mosquitoes Sunday night.
Workers say the strong winds blew in a larger breed of mosquitos normally found in Florida. Enviromental Control workers waited until the winds completely died down before they started to spray this weekend.
"It takes about ten or eleven days to cover the entire county." said Environmental Control specialist Donell Mathis.
Sunday, crews focused on the Radium Springs area, where even minor flooding on the banks of the Flint River make for perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
