Mosquito Prevention: Are you playing your part?
With the ever present threat that mosquitoes bring to us humans, we are always on the lookout for tips and tricks on how to keep on top of our own mosquito control. The Virginia Health Department have been actively requesting for communities to take precautionary measures against these disease spreading pests.
With the recent Zika virus outbreak, the Virginia Department of Health’s Eastern Shore District is asking the community to take measures now to help control the mosquito population come summertime.
As you can see there are a number of actions you can take to assist in the reduction of the mosquito population. If we all play our part, then we can do our best to not only protect our own families but also our neighbours and visitors to the local community.
Without a doubt, these bugs are dangerous, but there are plenty of methods in which we can make sure we protect ourselves. By simply educating others to do the same, the risk could be significantly lowered and fewer cases reported of mosquito borne illness.
