"We know that West Nile is present in our community, which is why we urge people to protect themselves from mosquito bites," said Lillian Rivera, R,N., M.S.N., Miami-Dade County Health Department Administrator.

Miami-Dade County Health Department officials remind residents that summer rains provoke mosquito breeding and everyone should keep up personal mosquito protection efforts at home and away.

I think that when they spray the 'mosquito repelent' as a mind control thingamabobber, like chemtrails.

thanks for giving me credit muaddib, that's rather sweet of you, but it wasn't necessary at all.

as for the west nile, i haven't heard too much about it this summer, back in april i believe it was ohio or illinois that had a reported case, but West Nile in South Florida alarms me, since so much of our lifestyle is spent outdoors. I hope this can serve as a reminder to wear your mosquito repellant before heading outside for the rest of this summer.

I was watching the news yesterday, and I guess two people in Buffalo, NY were infected with West Nile. But they were scientists trying to find a remedy or something, so I don't think they were infected in a public place or anything.
