Small and large bodies of standing water that could serve as new breeding grounds for mosquitoes. :Every little object that blows off a house or even a chair flipped over on a porch becomes a container for mosquitoes to breed,” Philip Stoddard, a Florida International University biology professor and the mayor of South Miami said. The human exposure to mosquitoes will increase without doubts. Hurricanes also cause people to change their daily habits, which can make them vulnerable to mosquitoes bites by, for example, opening doors because the air conditioning doesn’t work and spending more time outside fixing what was. The hurricane was expected to temporarily interrupt mosquito control efforts in Miami as spraying pesticides would not be effective during strong winds.
