Tick, mosquito infections increasing — CDC

Everyone in the United States loves the onset of warm weather, but possibly no one more than ticks, mosquitos, and fleas.

The Centers for Disease Control say tick-borne illnesses have tripled in the USA and Wisconsin is among the states with the most reported cases of these diseases. "Is it actually because there are more diseases or is the answer to this we have better reporting?"

Other factors leading to the spread of mosquito-borne diseases like Zika include global travel, the CDC said.

More proven and publicly accepted mosquito and tick control methods are needed to prevent and control these diseases. During the study period, the authors noted that tick-borne illnesses comprise 77 percent of all vector-borne disease case reports.

Tick-borne diseases alone more than doubled during that time frame, and accounted for more than 3 of every 5 cases of insect-transmitted disease in the United States.

Examining mosquito-related diseases alone, such as West Nile virus, IL logged more than 2,580 such cases during that 13-year stretch, according to the report.

Many such dwellings are run like regular apartment buildings, with doormen and residents paying monthly fees and utility bills. The building had been occupied irregularly seven years ago and some 150 people lived in the lower 10 floors, Globo reported.

A report published yesterday (May 1) by the US Centers for Disease Control shows a three-fold increase in the annual number of vector-borne disease cases reported in the US from 2004 to 2016.

Mosquitoes, ticks, fleas - we perceive these insects as an unpleasant and often unavoidable factor of life, but nearly never think that they not only affect our nerves, but also threaten our health. You can still find pages created before the Trump administration that fully report the science, such as a two-pager titled, "Climate change increases the number and geographic range of disease-carrying insects and ticks". Experts are investigating the role of climate change in the spread of these diseases. "And more people live around these deer now, where they're at risk". Overseas travel and commerce are more common than ever before.

From ticks, the public has contracted Lyme disease; Anaplasmosis/ehrlichiosis; Babesiosis; Powassan virus; Spotted fever rickettsiosis; and Tularemia.

Mosquito-borne disease epidemics happen more frequently. "Because tick activity depends on temperatures being above a certain minimum, shorter winters could also extend the period when ticks are active each year, increasing the time that humans could be exposed to Lyme disease". There are various types of ticks, but only the blacklegged tick can spread the disease. This month happens to be Lyme Disease Awareness Month. In Wisconsin that year, there were 44 confirmed cases in humans and five deaths from West Nile.

In 2016 alone, there were more than 96,000 cases reported.

"These are the most risky animals on the planet because they spread very unsafe diseases that spread not only in humans, but also from humans to animals and back to humans", he said.
