Mosquitoes Are On The Move
Mosquitoes are showing up in more places on the planet than previous years have recorded. These disease spreading pests are making an appearance in areas where very few sightings have been noted, which means that with them comes the threat of further disease transmission. Here’s an article with more information.
A mounting number of citations on a popular disease-tracking website suggests that mosquitoes may be moving into new ecological niches with greater frequency. The website, ProMED mail, has carried out more than a dozen such reports since June, all involving mosquito species known to transmit human diseases.
The U.K has fought hard to keep these pests out of the country with their disease spreading antics, but it looks as though mosquitoes have managed to find their way in.
The United States is constantly at battle with mosquitoes showing up in new areas. Whether we like it or not, we ourselves, as individuals are the only ones who can take action to protect our immediate surroundings by using repellent directly onto the skin, or taking those extra precautionary steps and making a worthwhile investment in mosquito control.
Anywhere that water can collect and the mosquito could lay an egg, that’s the kind of things you want to keep away. Obviously using insect repellent if you’re going to be outside, that’s a big thing. Long sleeve shirts, long pants, are also helpful in preventing mosquito bites.
Mosquitoes may be tiny but they are the biggest killers in the world… FACT! So whatever you can do to keep yourself safe and healthy from them is time and money well spent.
