Jonesboro resident, LeresaClark said she was hoping the extreme winter weather this year would have reducedthe amount of mosquitoes, but winter weather wasn't much of a help and springshowers have only made it worse for some people.

"I think all this rain madethem come a little bit earlier," said resident Michael Witt. "Usually, it's badmid-June but they've definitely come a lot earlier."

Sometimes bug spray just isn't enough.Some people use unique ways to keep the mosquitoes off of them.

"I heard a rumor that if youput a Bounty sheet in your pocket then they won't mess with you," saidJonesboro resident Patrick Moore. "It kind of worked for me last night."
