Just when you thought it was OK to go back outside. If you're wondering if the mosquitos have been unusually busy on your ankles lately, you're not the only one. This national mosquito list has Miami rising to the top, and it's just the start of an active season.\nAccording to Orkin, Miami jumped four spots in its 2020 mosquito report, which also included several other major Florida cities like Tampa and Orlando, but Miami actually made the top 10.\nThe pest control company releases these annual listings to show where the different U.S. cities rank when it comes to where Orkin does the most residential and commercial treatments for mosquitoes.\n"With much of the country under a shelter-in-place order, backyards will be busier than ever at the outset of mosquito season as residents seek recreation without leaving home," the reports says. "Increased outdoor time may lead to increased experience with these blood-sucking pests."\nTampa and Orlando also rose in the rankings, coming in at 16 and 20 on the list.\nThe ranking comes after Miami-Dade County issued a mosquito-borne illness alert. According to Florida Health, Miami-Dade is the only county that has continually been under this alert since the start of 2020.\n#MondayMood: staying #mosquitobite-free!

Though experts are predicting storm activity to pick up as early as May and bring about a flurry of hurricanes.\nThree Inches of Rain!!! That is how much rain several FKMCD inspectors found in our rain gauges during their rounds. Take the time now to look for and dump any standing water on your property. Just an inch of water can breed a lot of mosquito misery.#FKMCD pic.twitter.com/WrG1bDUwr9— FL Keys Mosquito (@FlKeysMosquito) April 27, 2020\nHowever, Floridians won't have to worry about mosquitos transmitting COVID-19 to them. The World Health Organization dispelled rumors that the pesky bloodsuckers could carry the novel coronavirus early on in the pandemic.\nThough they are known to carry other diseases like Zika.\n#MosquitoControl Environmental Techs set out surveillance traps. These ladies are hard at work every day to keep #OurCounty safe from the scourge of mosquitoes and the diseases they can spread even as #COVIDー19 affects Miami-Dade. #EverydayHeroes #SaturdayShoutout pic.twitter.com/EESN9GddXj— 305 Mosquito Control (@305Mosquito) April 25, 2020\nAs Florida continues to ease into hurricane season, it might be time to start spraying on that bug repellant.
