Uh, Stuff is Getting Real – Chikungunya

We don’t mean to alarm anyone, but . . . AAAAAAAHHHH!!!! . . . check out this recent story in The Boston Globe about chikungunya, a very real virus being spread by mosquitoes.

The Globe states “The virus — pronounced chick-un-GOON-ya — used to infect people mainly on the other side of the world. But over the last year, it has rampaged through the Caribbean and Latin America infecting nearly 1 million people. It has spread into Florida and Puerto Rico, and threatens to keep moving northward.

We suppose only time will tell whether or not chikungunya makes it’s presence known in the U.S., but it clearly behooves us to take the appropriate steps in mitigating the spread of this virus. We won’t call it Step #1 as we like to stay humble, but we’ve gotta believe that “eliminating mosquitoes” ranks in the top 3 for sure. Now if you can get on board with that, then the next step is calling Ace Mosquito Control to quickly rid your property of the dreaded mosquito.
