Mosquitoes Pose Greater Threat than Just West Nile
Yellow fever is a tropical illness rarely found in California, but may now be more common because of the infected mosquitoes. The disease carrying mosquitoes have been reported from the Bay area and as far south as Los Angeles County.
Scientists are not sure why the wide spread growth of the mosquito into California,other than possible climate changes, but could this just be the beginning? Mosquitoes have been responsible for the spread of Yellow Fever, Wes-Nile, Malaria and several other diseases. Reducing your risk and trying to kill off the mosquitoes is the only way to be safe, for now.
