BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) --Mold and contaminated water aren't the only health threats after flooding. A tiny bug could be a big nuisance.
Carl Pender, a resident of flood-ravaged Paradise Lakes, said, “If we are having floods and there is lots of water around there are chances that mosquito population will go up.”
Pender said before the flood, Paradise Lakes already had a mosquito population.
“They were bad enough that if you go out outside for a while you'd get them.”
