Tropical storm Debby not only caused flood damage, but also increased the number of mosquitoes.
Counties like Taylor decided to take matters into their own hands.
Taylor County officials spent nearly $200,000 on aerial spraying for mosquitoes and they're hoping to get that back.
Tropical storm Debby crossed north Florida for several days causing the mosquito population to skyrocket.
Now, County Administrator Jack Brown says FEMA has stepped in and may give the county 75 percent of that money back.
Since Debby was declared a disaster, FEMA is aiding local governments in recovery efforts.
The state also has vowed to add on 12 1/2 percent to the payback.
"The mosquito situation has been really bad, my parents have seen big ones out where they live. They also have been biting my dog," said Wendy Beach, a local resident.
Local officials are hoping to give county employees a three percent raise. This reimbursement would allow more room in the budget for that to happen.
The county is confident the 87 1/2 percent will be given to them. They plan to ask the state to help out with the remaining amount.
