Well this is a first; I think? They are pulling out huge trucks all over town and spraying houses street by street. They are
going to town literally over this. (No pun intended)...heh..ok but seriously whether we are consenting
to this or not. This spray is is being sprayed everywhere from massive tanker trucks. I haven't seen anything like
this before. I'm concerned about what is in this spray of course; not to mention this virus. Anyone having this
going on in their cities? Gonna have to find out what they're using for spray-

Good post Neuro and :hiho:


What town are you referring to? I know Texas and Oklahoma are both going anal over all this, so I suppose its because of the climate zone in relation to the mosquito problem.

But yes, overkill (no pun intended) can be somewhat of an issue.

Cheers buddy.


:cheers:

We've had one suspected case here, but no reaction like that. That's pretty extreme

Here's the latest stats...............


West Nile cases in U.S. up 25 percent in latest week: CDC

By Marice Richter | Reuters


DALLAS (Reuters) - The number of U.S. cases of West Nile virus rose 25 percent in the latest week, putting the 2012 outbreak of the mosquito-borne disease on track to be the most severe on record in the United States, health officials said on Wednesday.

It's already the worst year ever in Texas, they said.

So far this year, 1,993 cases have been reported to federal health officials, up from 1,590 reported the week before, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in its weekly update of outbreak data. A total of 87 people have now died from the disease, compared with 66 reported one week ago.

The disease has been reported in people, birds or mosquitoes in 48 U.S. states, so far absent only in Alaska and Hawaii. About half of all human cases are in Texas, the CDC said.

Of the nearly 2,000 cases reported to the CDC this year, 1,069, or 54 percent, are of the severe neuroinvasive form of the disease, which can lead to meningitis and encephalitis.

The milder form of the disease causes flu-like symptoms and is rarely lethal.

Texas, the outbreak's epicenter, has had 40 deaths and 495 neuroinvasive cases this year, said Dr. David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services.

About a quarter of the cases have been in Dallas County, he said. "This is our worst year ever in Texas," Lakey said.

The trouble with trying to kill off one species is that it can cause unforseen (at the time) consequences. This story would be funny if it was not so dammed serious for the people who's roofs fell in,and who were in less danger from one disease, but now threatened by another two!




In the early 1950s, there was an outbreak of a serious disease called malaria amongst the Dayak people in Borneo. The World Health Organization tried to solve the problem. They sprayed large amounts of a chemical called DDT to kill the mosquitoes that carried the malaria. The mosquitoes died and there was less malaria. That was good. However, there were side effects. One of the first effects was that the roofs of people's houses began to fall down on their heads. It turned out that the DDT was also killing a parasitic wasp that ate thatch-eating caterpillars. Without the wasps to eat them, there were more and more thatch-eating caterpillars. Worse than that, the insects that died from being poisoned by DDT were eaten by gecko lizards, which were then eaten by cats. The cats started to die, the rats flourished, and the people were threatened by outbreaks of two new serious diseases carried by the rats, sylvatic plague and typhus. To cope with these problems, which it had itself created, the World Health Organization had to parachute live cats into Borneo

I'm such a conspiracy theorist!

Wasn't there a bio lab that was compromised a few hurricanes ago in texas on the gulf?

Oh and,...I hear they are making up a nice little vaccine.

Call me cynical, but the problem, reaction, solution paradigm is the top winner of the decade!!!

Now I am not saying if this is legit then we shouldn't prepare ourselves, Just sayin..........Remember the anthrax drama?
What a long strange trip it's been..............
