Victoria, Texas is known for its hot and humid summers. It appears mosquitoes must have heard about this, especially the Asian tiger mosquito. The new arrival of chikungunya has been more of a traveler’s concern, until last week when two people in Florida contracted the illness without ever leaving Florida. This means that mosquitoes are now transmitting the disease in the continental U.S. With Florida having a similar climate to Victoria Texas, the results here could become similar also regarding disease transmission (chikungunya).
West Nile virus and chikungunya cases have both been documented in Texas already. While the chikungunya virus was not contracted here in the U.S., the Asian tiger mosquito and Yellow Fever mosquito are both able to transmit the virus. All it takes is for the infected human to be bitten by a mosquito, then that mosquito bites another person, and we will have local Chikungunya transmissions. Currently, West Nile virus is a much larger concern in our area, but that soon could change. One interesting fact most people don’t know is that Asian tiger mosquitoes can transmit heartworms to their pets.
