Zika-Carrying Mosquitoes are Showing Up in All the Wrong Places…

ZIka prevention victoria texasGloom and doom has been on the horizon, regarding Zika, for the past several months. It seems you simply cannot escape the constant barrage of Zika warnings and updates. One simple fact that creates cause for concern is the distribution of mosquitoes capable of carrying the scary disease. Here, in Victoria, it looks as though we are in one of the less lucky areas concerning mosquitoes which could carry Zika.

Both of these mosquitoes have been deemed carriers of the Zika virus. While there are still zero documented cases of Zika being spread locally within the continental U.S., there have been hundreds of cases of individuals infected with the virus from traveling abroad. Couple this fact with the fact that two of the mosquitoes capable of transmitting the virus can be found around our homes here in Victoria and you can come to a scary hypothesis.
