Mosquitoes, the deadliest creatures on
earth are responsible for killing more than
one million people each and every year. Mosquito Control is an
important public health function fortunately most people in the United
States live work and play in areas where publicly
funded programs help protect people from mosquitoes and the diseases they
carry. These programs run by mosquito control experts have
made great strides in safeguarding our health and quality of life for example Malaria was once a big
problem in the United States but has essentially been eliminated from
our country. The battle continues however because
mosquitoes still routinely transmit diseases. West Nile virus is the most common
affecting thousands of people each year the symptoms that range from fever to
lifelong debilitating consequences even death, Crystal Wally is living proof. it was heartbreaking I have a husband
