Transmitted by Mosquitoes, The Zika Virus Hits the U.S.

In Hawaii, there has been the first known case of the Zika Virus to be reported which is spread by mosquitoes. A baby was born with a very small head which the doctors are linking the birth defect to the virus.

This has been confirmed by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention).

The mother most likely contracted this disease when she was living in Brazil in 2015.

“Health officials warned pregnant women who have visited Latin American countries to get tested for a mosquito-born virus known as the Zika Virus, which has been linked to brain damage in newborns. RT’s Marina Portnaya has more information and takes a look at how the disease is spreading.” RTAmerica

Swarmer Alert! Termites Are Swarming in Florida!

Termite swarms occur when winged reproductive termites leave an established termite colony to mate and form new colonies. They pose an alarming reminder that termite colonies are in a structure or surrounding areas, looking for new places to feed and thrive. Annually, termites cause an estimated $5 billion to $10 billion in property damage in the United States.

What do you do when swarmers are spotted?

Consider it a warning that a subterranean termite problem may exist somewhere in the structure, especially if the swarm occurred indoors, and get help. We are excited to offer a long-term solution that actually eliminates the entire termite colony from the structure, the Sentricon System.
