Zika virus can be transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Some individuals, including the elderly and persons with compromised immune systems, WNV can cause serious illness that affects the central nervous system. There are things everyone can do both at home and while travelling to reduce the risk of infection.
"Mosquitoes need approximately a cap-full of water to breed and continue the life cycle". This leads to a scenario of warmer and potentially more stagnant water bodies in water-saturated areas, which are then prime conditions for mosquito breeding areas. Mosquito and health experts worked quickly to stop it from spreading in urban areas like Miami's Wynwood neighborhood.
· Drain or dump - Remove all standing water around your property where mosquitoes can lay eggs such as birdbaths, green swimming pools, ponds, old tires, buckets, flower pots, clogged gutters, or even puddles from leaky sprinklers. "We put out products that prevent mosquitoes from growing into adults".
Install or Repair Screens - Some mosquitoes like to come indoors.
Limit time spent outside at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.
Discuss the use of equine mosquito repellents with your veterinarian.
