WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Sharks and bugs are making for some trouble in the Sunshine state!

In recent days, thousands of Blacktip and Spinner sharks have littered the West Palm Beach, Florida coastline.  Marine biologists say those particular breeds are not especially dangerous, still, swimmers were advised to stay out of the water for a period, as the big fish started their migration up north.

As for the bugs, a certain breed of larger mosquitoes may be a problem in the panhandle this year, courtesy Tropical Storm Debby and the soupiness she left behind.

For what it’s worth, experts say this larger breed of skeeter doesn’t carry diseases, and bug spray should ward them ‘off’ just fine!
