Chair: MS. Debbie Johnson
Quest Speaker: Mr. John Shellhorn, Chief, Mosquito Control.
The ZIKA Sickness resulting from Mosquito bite is biggest concern for control, receiving a lot of attention in media. Currently all cases identified in US are received from other areas other than United States.Pregnant Women are very venerable (can cause severe Birth Defects) and should avoid countries known to breed ZIKA carrying the Virus. Young children and senior Adults are also more venerable . Effects can last from 7-10 Days while experiencing Fever, Joint soreness, Rash and Cold symptoms.
To decrease breeding possibilities, Empty all containers with standing water (big or small) as these are excellent breeding areas for this type mosquito.
For personnel protection, any insect repellant with DEET is excellent.Any questions can be referred to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-0500.
