SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —
It’s true. Mosquitoes like some people more than others.
The annoying insect also loves to breed in California. The state is home to the most mosquito-transmitted diseases in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Around 50 mosquito species are attracted to the state’s hot summers and mild winters, as well as agricultural areas like rice fields and stagnant pools in urban areas. Not to mention California is the most populated state in the nation.
During peak summer temperatures, mosquitoes can grow from an egg into an adult in less than a week.
