MOSQUITO CONTROL GROUPS FROM ALL OVER THE STATE MET IN LEE COUNTY TODAY TO COME UP WITH A PLAN OF ACTION IF IT HITS HERE. Return to index of stories...


CHICKUNGUNYA MEETING-BNR-PKG


its spring cleaning time for kathy gardner.

sot kathy gardner

im doing some yard work, trimming the buses, trying to spruce it up."

what she didnt know- is shes exposing herself to chickungynya.

nat cutting bush

the name of the disease is derived from the african word meaning to

bend over because of the debilitating joint pain it inflicts.

it spreads at at a rapid rate through mosquitos.

even if you dont see them-

sot kathy

we dont usually have a mosquito problem in this neighborhood."

lee county mosquito control says they're there,

hidden in residential areas that mosquito control can't spray.

sot Shelly Redovan, Lee County Mosquito Control

we dont pay a lot of attention to them normally because these are

mosquitos that are around people's houses, they come off in low

numbers, they're year round mosquitos, and theres not much that we can

do."

joelle su

these mosquitos only need a little bit of water to lay their eggs so

even a candle holder like this needs to be constantly checked and then

dumped out."

sot shelly

they havent been a problem but now we're a little worrried that they

could be and the very best thing we can do is get people to police

their yards."

mosquito control districts from all over the state are brainstorming

for solutions.

including looking at past disasters.

nat

martin county took on a dengue fever outbreak just last year.

that illness- spread by the same type of mosquitos that spread chickungynya.

they took to the streets,

finding and killing the bloodsuckers in some unlikely places.

sot gene lemire, martin county mosquito control

no body wants to be surprised."

once infected- symptoms dont typically appear for 7-12 days,

sot shelly

before we know its here it could already be in a couple of people."

to keep your family safe-

eliminate standing water, wear repellant and cover your skin 24-7,

since this breed is known for feeding even in daylight.

sot kathy

ill take precautions, thanks for warning me." Return to index of stories...


CHICKUNGUNYA MEETING-PLASMA

DISTRICTS IN LEE. CHARLOTTE AND COLLIER COUNTIES ALL RECEIVED LESS FUNDING -- INCLUDING A DROP OF 400-THOUSAND DOLLARS IN LEE COUNTY ALONE.

EDUCATION LEADERS SAY THE STATEWIDE TREND IS DUE TO TOUGHER TESTING STANDARDS. AND MORE RIGOROUS REQUIREMENTS.
