Zika Virus & Mosquitoes

Posted on March 7, 2016 by - Uncategorized

While it’s no surprise that mosquitoes are disease-bearing, the CDC declaring the Zika virus a global health emergency is a bit disconcerting to some. This disease, as you may or may not know, can cause fevers, joint pain, conjunctivitis, and more. There are steps that you can take to avoid being one of the projected 4 million people that this virus will affect, and as makers of Houston mosquito control systems, we’d like to help.

The Cause

Zika virus is a mosquito-borne illness that spreads a number of ways, but is most commonly spread by mosquitoes. The Zika virus outbreak in the United States had started with mosquito transmission outside of the United States.

While mosquito transmission of Zika virus is not yet a concern in the United States, it is entirely possible that the virus could eventually affect mosquitoes in the US. If you are suspected of having Zika virus, it is important to keep mosquitoes away.
