Deadly Mosquitos Coming to America

Deadly new virus is coming to America

Mosquitoes from Brazil are carrying the deadly Zika virus, which can cause birth defects in babies and a crippling nervous system disorder in adults, and they are heading your way.

Once spring arrives, it will be the perfect breeding season for mosquitos.

The Zika virus is going to be knocking on the doorstep in places like Florida and Texas probably in the spring or summer.

And once someone is infected and travels north, along comes the virus to be spread everywhere.

And unlike other skeeter bites, these will not just itch; they could kill you.

The bloodsuckers can transmit the virus that causes a devastating and painful condition in which your immune system attacks your nervous system, known as Guillain-Barré syndrome.

It can lead to disability… paralysis… and even death.

That is the newest risk from mosquitoes… but it is hardly the only risk.

West Nile is still out there, causing thousands of illnesses and hundreds of deaths in the United States in just the last few years alone — and seniors are particularly at risk.

Some mosquitoes are even spreading the horrific chikungunya virus, which can cause crippling pain that lasts for months.

A good defense is to get rid of all sources of standing water around your home — and get your neighbors to do the same. Give them fewer places to breed.

Before you step outside during mosquito season, stock up on citronella and make sure all your window and door screens are secured and do not have any holes in them. And if you are the outdoorsy type, wear long pants and long sleeves, get some mosquito repelling gear, and invest in a mosquito bed net.

 

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.
