Mosquito BiteCheck out this news story out of Massachusetts. West-Nile  is the mosquito that  most of us have heard about in the United States.

Now, another type of illness, Chikungunya which has been reported in the Carribean is making its way to the United States, specifically, the Boston area. Right now there isn’t a cure for this illness and it is something to be on the lookout for.

In the meantime, it is important to take precautions by trying to make sure areas of standing water are minimized and to closely be aware of any unusual symptoms as the result of a mosquito bite.
