How Zika got to Brazil

There is a lot of false marketing about The Zika Virus on Facebook and Youtube saying it is no big deal. These snappy videos saying “zika is no threat like the common cold.”

It is bad, and we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Here is some quick research for you:

  • GMO mosquitoes
    • Are used to “combat the mosquito population with Sterile males”
    • Fact: Male mosquitoes do not need a blood meal and do not bite, only the female mosquitoes bite in order to receive the blood meal before she lays her eggs.
    • The “GMO mosquitoes” are said to be a form of insect growth regulators, that when they mate with the regular female mosquitoes, the offspring do not turn into mature adults
    • “GMO Mosquitoes don’t kill other mosquitoes”
    • Thes Mosquito Control Districts can not 100% truthfully say only male mosquitoes are released because there have been documented cases that a small percentage of the mosquitoes that are released are female.
      • And the impact of these “GMO female mosquitoes” have yet to be discovered.
  • Number of micro cases this year

Swarmer Alert! Termites Are Swarming in Florida!

Termite swarms occur when winged reproductive termites leave an established termite colony to mate and form new colonies. They pose an alarming reminder that termite colonies are in a structure or surrounding areas, looking for new places to feed and thrive. Annually, termites cause an estimated $5 billion to $10 billion in property damage in the United States.

What do you do when swarmers are spotted?

Consider it a warning that a subterranean termite problem may exist somewhere in the structure, especially if the swarm occurred indoors, and get help. We are excited to offer a long-term solution that actually eliminates the entire termite colony from the structure, the Sentricon System.
