Huge mosquitoes, some the size of a quarter, have been biting people in South Texas.
The recent humid climate has made the area very attractive for mosquitoes to breed and, as a result, the population has suddenly exploded.
A reporter for ABC13Steve Campion said that he and his photographer took to Twitter to describe their encounter with biting insects.
Residents in Southwest Texas are trying to repel thousands of mosquitoes that have been concentrated in their homes
The swarms of flying pests are huge compared to the usual size of mosquitoes
Many have posted photos on Twitter of the size of insects compared to a coin
"I can not tell you how many mosquitoes surrounded us and I. Every time we hit one, there was blood."
Others have discovered giant mosquitoes in their cars or even insects the size of a room in people's homes.
Another reported noticed that there were so many who could take us.
In addition to using deet on the skin that can help repel insects, others suggested planting basil, lemongrass, rosemary and marigolds in the garden, which are one of the plants that will help keep insects away.
With a big flood in the coming days, only stagnant water is expected to make things worse
