According to a recent article in the Waco Tribune, “Recent rains have assured plentiful breeding habitat for the Aedes mosquito…”. It appears we aren’t even close to the peak of mosquito season. Usually by July we are at the height of the season which will continue until at least October. It appears the recent rains have allowed for a jumpstart to another uptick in the mosquito population.
Aedes mosquitoes are gaining worldwide attention. You’ve probably heard the name before. The reason for their increased notoriety is due to Zika. Aedes mosquitoes are the primary carrier of the Zika virus. Essentially, the Aedes mosquito is the primary reason for so many athletes dropping out of the Olympics in Rio due to fear of the Zika virus. Zika has been associated with a birth defect called microcephaly, which results in improper development of the brain in a fetus – the results can be heartbreaking. Not only is Zika spread through mosquito bites, but can also be spread by blood transfusions as well as sexual contact.
