Tampa Bay Area Preps for Possible Zika Outbreak

This year the residents of Tampa Bay will need to do a bit more as they prepare for the summer months that are quickly approaching. One of the more important things we all need to consider is taking precautions against mosquitoes, as we can expect the Zika virus to hit us this year. While homeowners are looking for new flowers, planters, or even the best carpet sale to get their homes shipshape this summer, a few simple tasks can be used to help prevent mosquito growth around the home.

“With the warm, wet summer months fast approaching, Tampa Bay area residents can — and should — take steps to prevent the spread of the mosquito-borne Zika virus, local health officials said Tuesday. It’s as simple as draining empty flowerpots, tires and upside down frisbees, said Hillsborough County Public Works Director John Lyons. “Anything that traps water,” Lyons said, noting that any standing water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.”
