Flying Injection: Prevent the bite of disease

Just as people are basking in the warmth of summer, mosquitoes too are out to suck warm blood. Apart from the nuisance that it is, this could mean a lethal injection of many harmful diseases//.

The program-in-charge for Delaware Mosquito Control, Bill Meredith, said that Delaware offers an ambient atmosphere for mosquito to breed. In his words,' We’re a buggy state. We're in the top 10 in the United States in human population density and we're in the top 10 in percent of wetlands cover. It's those wetlands that are used by mosquitoes as their breeding grounds.'

Mosquitoes have been responsible for spreading many diseases, presently the West Nile Virus, over the Eastern United States. Other diseases like encephalitis, dengue and yellow fever are also caused by mosquito bites. The West Nile virus is becoming a cause for concern. People can get acutely sick after infections set in from mosquito bites.

The only silver lining is to take adequate precaution. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so the key is to ensure that stagnant water in pools, drains, and gutters must be drained out, to obliterate the chance of mosquito breeding. Even flower pots can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. It is best to wear appropriate clothes that keep legs and hands covered. Mosquito netting on windows and beds is a good idea to keep mosquitoes at bay.
