South Florida is known for its sun, surf and fun. Now you can add one more item to that list. Rats.
Lovebugs. The name sounds cute, but the bizarre insects are anything but when they bombard your car on the highway or when they get in your hair or crawl all over your body.
Skeeters a problem? Lots of people think so, so Miami-Dade officials are calling in the cavalry;well, actually, the Air Force to kill the biting pests and their breeding grounds. However, the attack may come as a surprise because of how low the spraying planes fly.
That buzzing you hear tonight as you try to doze of may not be the hum of a pesky mosquito flitting around your face; it could be the hum of an airplane doing battle with millions of the pesky critters, as Miami-Dade breaks with practice and holds an unusual night-time mosquito spraying.
