NBC — Recent droughts in Texas have meant fewer mosquitos, but the ones that are buzzing around now are more aggressive than in past seasons.
According to researchers with University of North Texas Health Science Center, this season's mosquitos are bigger and badder and it's because of the drought.
In order to endure the dry conditions, they've evolved by living longer, flying farther and biting more aggressively.
According to entomologists, the number may be down or lower than other years, however the mosquitos are actually more active and stronger."
Scientists predict that with warmer temperatures this season compared to those in the past-- the chances of more West Nile virus cases could be higher.
The best bet is to slather on the bug spray, though some experts aren't convinced even the most powerful ones can keep the super mosquito away.
Researchers are currently performing tests for any possible trends regarding West Nile virus.
