Massive clouds of mosquitoes kill cows, horses in Louisiana

Killing large animals by the hundreds.

Swarms of mosquitoes have killed cows, deer, horses and other livestock in Louisiana after rain from Hurricane Laura led to an explosion in the pests’ population.

Thousands of mosquitoes have attacked animals as large as bulls.

“As soon as you would walk outside, your legs would turn black from the sheer amount of mosquitoes,” said Jeremy Hebert, a LSU AgCenter agent in Acadia Parish.
