Weekly Update:

The rain and warm weather has come. Mosquito numbers are on the rise. Please remember to drain any containers that catch rain or sprinkler water, and if possible store them in a way that prevents water collections. Have bromeliads? Don't forget they can be mosquito habitat as well. Flush them out at least once a week with a hose or add some Bti, approved for use on organic farms, to prevent them from breeding mosquitoes. What about birdbaths? You can flush them out regularly and add some Bti, it won't hurt the birds, to keep them mosquito free as well. You have a rain barrel? That's fine, just make sure it has the appropriate screens to exclude mosquitoes. You can even throw some Bti in it if you start to notice larvae swimming around. Let's start of summer right and start using mosquito prevention practices now so we have less mosquito trouble later.

      Have you heard about Chikungunya?

Chikungunya (pronunciation: \chik-en-gun-ye click to hear pronunciationExternal Web Site Icon) virus is transmitted to people by mosquitoes. The most common symptoms of chikungunya virus infection are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash. Outbreaks have occurred in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans. In late 2013, chikungunya virus was found for the first time in the Americas on islands in the Caribbean. Chikungunya virus is not currently found in the United States. There is a risk that the virus will be imported to new areas by infected travelers. There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat chikungunya virus infection. Travelers can protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites. When traveling to countries with chikungunya virus, use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and pants, and stay in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens.
