    2 cases of mosquito virus contracted in US - Yahoo News

    An interesting virus to watch......does not sound fun at all and I suspect those that have compromised systems will be in danger.

    I'm not gonna worry too much about this, already take steps as in mosquito repellant. I'd be focusing more on the bloodsuckers in D.C. And there have been 200 cases in the U.S.(imported cases though) since 2006 and it's only making news now? I wonder if the Florida case has anything to do with lax only takes one carrier to set off a pandemic...

    @VHestin - It's making the news now because they are the first domestically acquired cases. I just gave blood on Thursday and they both asked me about travel out of the country to the Caribbean and gave me a warning pamphlet about it. First time for that.

    Rub dryer sheets all over and this will repel.
    Some swear by Bounce but the experts say that it only repels gnats. Either way it is worth trying before spraying chemicals on yourself.

    Also just read about vanilla you can spray on yourself
