Yellow fever mosquitoes found in more locations
In an attempt to completely remove the Yellow Fever Mosquito (Aedes aegypti) several efforst are being made by officials but they are still finding more of them in newer locations.
The control and eradication of Aedes aegypti is going on at a regular basis after they were detected at the Holy Cross Cemetery, Menlo Park on August 22, 2013.
The District has recently discovered the mosquito at 20 new locations around the cemetery after carrying out a combing check up of 1,000 houses.
The search revealed that at least 200 places had these mosquitoes breeding in big numbers.
Further information given by the Fresno County Public Health Department says that yellow fever mosquitoes are breeding in two more valley cites.
Fowler and Fresno in California detected yellow fever mosquitoes for the first time since this mosquito is typically from the African continent.
Officials have requested the people to report every mosquito bite during the day and have been asked to religiously use repellents especially with children.
Officials have asked them to remove standing water from any place which does not require it since it can lead to yellow fever mosquito to breed.
