Growing up in Minnesota, it's nothing new to see mosquitoes. Sometimes they would even ruin outdoor gatherings because they got so bad. I remember they used to use planes to fly over the Twin Cities and spray mosquito pesticide to help control the mosquito population. Minnesota may be the "Land of 10,000 Lakes", but it's also the "Land of 85,923,921 mosquitoes". I learned that no matter where you go, ALWAYS bring a can of bug spray if you were going outside.
