With the threat of severe weather and the memory of Hurricane Irene not far from people's minds-Some Eastern Carolina residents say they're worried about this storm stirring up a pest problem again.
Residents in the Adams Creek area of Craven County say they're not concerned about potential flooding from heavy rain, they're more concerned about the increase of mosquitoes a heavy rain will bring.
People are still cleaning up after Irene and some neighbors say one of the hardest parts about cleaning up is fighting the mosquitoes that have increased since the storm.
Gene Wallace says he sprays his own yard, but he's worried the rainy weather that's to come this week will increase the mosquito population even more.
Craven County Commissioners decided again in a meeting Monday morning not to spray for mosquitoes. It was removed from the last budget, well before Irene hit the east.
