Prepare Yourself For The Mosquito Season
The World Health Organization, Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, and other Environmental Health Departments are warning individuals in different parts of the country to prepare themselves for the coming mosquito season. Since 2015, 48 nations and territories in the Americas confirmed Zika transmission. Although California had no reports or concerns about the Zika virus mosquitoes, this year and the wet winter as well as warm spring have created the best breeding conditions for mosquitoes. If you want to protect yourself and your family from the diseases these insects could transmit, it is better to hire a mosquito service. Zika Virus Mosquitoes Will Multiply It is scary to know that health professionals have predicted the Zika virus carrying mosquito, Aedes Aegypti, will multiply across the eastern and southern states this coming summer. The Aedes mosquito may spread as far as Los Angeles and New York City. This is primarly due to the warm winter as well as to favourable summer conditions. According to the scientists and researchers from the University of Georgia, 26 mosquito species across different geneses could possibly carry the Zika virus. Different species have a tendency to live in a certain region, the model specified, as well as seven mosquito species in the US could turn into hosts for the Zika virus. One certain species that can tolerate colder temperatures is the Asian Tiger mosquito, the Aedes Albopictus, that’s heading north. Another invasive species that carries West Nile fever, Dengue fever, Encephalitis, and Yellow fever is the Albopictus.
