Super-sized mosquitoes which can bite through clothing are heading to Florida 'in large numbers' this summer

Scientists at the University of Florida have predicted large numbers of super-sized mosquitoes in Central and South Florida this summer. Researchers say large numbers of Gallinipper mosquitoes are waiting to hatch and any heavy rainfall will make the insects emerge in 'large numbers'. The insects can be 20 times the size of the more common Asian tiger mosquito, pictured right in comparison.
