It’s that time of year, the temperature is rising, flowers are blooming; you’re preparing your backyard for family grill outs and get-togethers. Spring is in the air and April is notoriously a wet month, the last thing you want is standing water, STANDING in the way of your spring-time plans. Like most years, warmer weather and rain brings out pesky mosquitoes looking for any opportunity to feed. The difference this year, is that these mosquitoes could potentially be carrying a dangerous blood-borne pathogen.
According to the Center for Disease Control, 40 out of the 50 continental US states, have already reported cases of individuals contracting the Zika Virus. The Zika Virus, known to cause serious birth defects in pregnant woman, is primarily transmitted by mosquitoes. While largely present in Central and South America, the CDC predicts the southern and eastern halves of the US to see the highest number of reported cases this summer.
While standing water in your yard presents a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes, there’re steps you can take to protect your family this spring.
