Waves of mosquitoes have descended upon western Russia&rsquo;s Voronezh oblast since May 6, in what local media is calling an unprecedented number of insects.

The mosquito invasion has drawn complaints from the inhabitants of multiple towns, but especially those living in Pavlovsk and its neighboring villages, where local livestock and dogs have reportedly died from insect bites.

Residents said they were living in &ldquo;a state of siege&rdquo; and that their normal routines had been disrupted, according to vestivrn.ru.

It is unclear what factors have caused the insect invasion, but RIA Novosti reported that the Voronezh region has suffered from similar problems in the past, especially in 2013, and that flooding this year may have led to an especially large increase in the mosquito population.
