This trending news, along with reports of dangerous snakes, an overpopulation of bears in urban areas and coyote packs coming into cities make people believe that there are a lot of dangerous animals are on the loose near their homes.
However there is little news about the most dangerous animal on earth ... the Mosquito! The mosquito kills more people, approximately a million annually, than all of the other animals on earth combined. This small pesky insect is responsible for malaria, dengue, various forms of encephalitis, West Nile Virus, yellow fever, and Chikungunya. They are even infect horses and man’s best friends, dogs.
So my friends stop worrying about the sharks, the bears, and the coyotes. Leave them alone, we are the ones invading their space; start concentrating on the bigger (tiny) most dangerous problem, the mosquito!
Do your part....
Eliminate standing water, as they are possible breeding grounds.
Use insect repellent and cover exposed skin.
Limit your time outdoors at dawn and dusk
