Chicago Tribune: Mosquitoes, ticks are coming to kill us ... unless we strike first

Mosquito Bites

That headline, "Mosquitoes, ticks are coming to kill us ... unless we strike first", ran in the Chicago Tribune May 8, 2018.  It ran with a huge, ugly picture of a mosquito biting someone on the skin. 

The article goes on to say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the number of "reported cases of disease from mosquito, tick, and flea bites has more than tripled" since 2004.  They continue on how diseases from ticks alone have increased by at least seven, including new diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Heartland virus disease and a very scary "anaplasmosis."  

The article tries to add humor to a serious subject but it falls flat comparing the ridiculousness of zombies, riding a deer as bait and more.

But the bottom line is there are ways to reduce exposure to these increasingly dangerous insects, one of course is to install a misting system which is extremely effective in killing mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.  See more at our DIY website.
