Posts with the tag: "mosquito-borne diseases"
Mosquitoes are a problem all over the globe; and in Hawaii, they are a year-round problem. They constantly buzz in people's ears, cause annoying reactions when they bite and can transmit some very serious diseases. Insect related human deaths are more likely to be the result of transmission of diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, Zika virus, encephalitis, and the West Nile virus by mosquitoes than any other insect. You can find more information about these mosquito-borne illnesses at the State of Hawaii Department of Health Services and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention websites.
