Keep Using Mosquito Repellents

Risk Update

By The Ascel Bio Editorial Staff

Wet weather in many parts of the country has created ideal conditions for mosquitos.  After a dry 2017, this year may bring fresh outbreaks of concern.

Ascel Bio’s zika virus map, which was the first live map for the USA ever, continues to show risks of zika virus transmission across the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Coast. 

Reports are emerging of West Nile Virus across the United States too, and Dengue continues to be a risk in some southern states.  Ascel Bio’s combined mosquito diseases map forecasts risks to continue into October.

Mosquito repellants remain an extremely important disease prevention tool.
