Where Will The Giant Mosquitoes Invade?

They are 20 times the size of a normal mosquito and some people say their bite feels like you’re being “knifed”, according to yahoo.com. So where have are these mosquitoes headed? 

They’re called gallinippers and it looks like they have their sights set on the coast of Florida. Experts say that the recent tropical storms have made the area a perfect breeding ground for the mosquitoes, which are the size of a quarter. 

They are known to bite right through clothing and the invasion of the gallinippers is expected to strike during the summer. The good news, if there is any, is that they are not known to be “major transmitters” of diseases like malaria. And I haven’t heard anyone say that any of the gallinippers will attempt to head in the direction of New Jersey, but would it surprise you after the year we’ve had?
