Just as we’re getting geared up for backyard barbecues and other outdoor fun, out comes a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) saying that not only has the number of cases of diseases from ticks, mosquitoes and fleas increased, but the types of diseases transmitted by these insects is also disturbingly rising.
According to the CDC, the number of people in the U.S. diagnosed with insect-borne diseases has tripled in recent years. And at least nine new insect-borne diseases have been identified since 2004. In particular, the Northeast United States has experienced a steady increase in the patients diagnosed with serious mosquito-borne diseases. This includes previously alien strains of West Nile and the Zika viruses.
