Meanwhile a few hours south, in Houston, where we live, Dr. Rudy Bueno, Harris County Mosquito Control Director, stated that 90% of the mosquitos tested in the Houston area are testing positive for the virus. FREAKIN' 90%!!!
In doing the research to send a mass email out to the employees of my company and our tenants, I discovered that it's not just Texas that needs to take precautions....
Here is the Centers of Disease Control WNV resource: http://www.cdc.gov/n...tnile/index.htm
Please take a moment to learn more.
Don't stop cachin', but be extra careful especially in the early morning and evenings when the nasty little critters are most active
Oh, I meant this as a joke back in 2003, but it sadly has been proven to be true... geocaching:(v) Wayyy more chances to contract West Nile or Lyme Disease than the average person...
Anyone know of any cachers that have contracted WNV???
Be careful out there and don't forget the mosquito repellant.
