Videos and photos posted on social media showcase the flying insects' monster size.

North Carolina resident Cassie Vadovsky posted a video to Facebook showing a swarm of the blood-thirsty insects outside her auto at her home. In one such video, a child is heard asking: "Why are you doing that - taking pictures of the wasps?"

Officials say she had been providing Ireland with a place to stay in the wake of Hurricane Florence. It was more gradual.

"I'm not even on the side of town that had the major flooding", Vadovsky told USA Today. These mosquitoes, often called 'gallinippers, ' are known for their painful bite and often lay eggs in low-lying damp areas. "I think my vehicle agitated them".

The eggs lie dormant in dry weather and hatch as adults following heavy rains.

Robert Phillips of Fayetteville, N.C., told the Fayetteville Observer that when he went to leave his house last week, he was swarmed by the aggressive mosquitoes, referring to it as "a bad science fiction movie". "It was like a small blackbird". Gallnippers are more of a nuisance than a health risk, but they make storm recovery more hard by driving people indoors.

She captioned the video: "This, this is what I'm dealing with #nc#afterflorence#helpme#mosquitoplague#prayfornc".

In an attempt to combat the pesky critters, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper dedicated US$4 million in relief funds.

After Hurricane Florence made landfall North Carolina on September 14, flooding created the flawless breeding ground for this type of mosquito, as the standing waters allowed eggs to hatch, Michael Reiskind, an entomology professor at North Carolina State University, told the Fayetteville Observer.

The state's Department of Health and Human Services has also released some tips on how to deal with the mosquito outbreak on its website, which can be found here.
