SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — People living along the coast in north county say they can’t remember the last time mosquitoes were so bad.

Sharon Mauro lives near the San Elijo Lagoon in Solana Beach.

“Oh, we couldn’t leave the house without them attacking us,” said Mauro.

She hired Tony Gallardo of Mosquito Joe to spray her property.

“The last few weeks have been very busy. Basically, from the coastline all the way to Poway, the mosquito problem is pretty significant right now,” said Gallardo.

Gallardo says he sprays roughly 15 homes a day.

“This is kind of a perfect storm in everybody is stuck at home now, they want to be outside. The kids are getting tired of being inside. You get outside the mosquitos are eating everybody up, they’re breeding cause they have more food, strange way to put it,” said Gallardo.
