MISSOURI — Missouri could see a spike in mosquito numbers this summer due to the wet conditions the state has already seen in the spring.

 

Flooding of the Missouri River, farm fields and local creeks have produced standing water all over the state. Dr. Howard Pue of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services talked with KMZU’s Nick Sadowski about the possibility of a larger mosquito population this summer.
