ZIKA the return of the Mozzie

It has been almost 70 years, but the ‘not-just-annoying’ pest has (ahem) bugged us before.
The little bitches (the females are the ones that bite – I don’t know the name for a female mossie, so ‘bitch’ will do nicely) are seldom found more than 100 -200 metres from home. So, we here on the Islands could give some valuable scientific data. We would have a ‘captive’ population, so to speak, as they would be unlikely to range from the mainland easily.
Mind you, if they DO get a foothold, it might be even worse for us for the same reasons, we are isolated by seawater and they’ll stay near to local freshwater.
