2012: The Year of the Bugs

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 2012 has been the worst year for the West Nile virus since 2003.

There have been nearly 2,000 cases of the disease so far this year, and 87 Americans have died.

The virus has been reported in 48 states this year, with almost 45 percent of cases in Texas. Another quarter of all cases have been reported from South Dakota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Michigan.

Also, a Hanta-virus outbreak has killed three visitors to Yosemite National Park.

There was a case of bubonic plague last week in Colorado, while a big jump in the tick population could mean an upsurge in Lyme disease.

Dr. William Shaffner, past president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, said the recent up-tick of infectious diseases is due, in part, to climate.

Don't forget about this--government is warning us again:


Seriously? Government warns citizens of ‘zombie apocalypse’ to urge better emergency plans


“The zombies are coming!” the Homeland Security Department says.

Tongue firmly in cheek, the government urged citizens Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, part of a public health campaign to encourage better preparation for genuine disasters and emergencies. The theory: If you’re prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack.

Flu shot linked to higher incidence of flu in pandemic year

A strange vaccine-related phenomenon spotted at the start of the 2009 flu pandemic may well have been real, a new study suggests.

Canadian researchers noticed in the early weeks of the pandemic that people who got a flu shot for the 2008-2009 winter seemed to be more likely to get infected with the pandemic virus than people who hadn't received a flu shot.

Five studies done in several provinces showed the same puzzling and unsettling results. But initially, research outside Canada did not, and the effect was dismissed as "the Canadian problem."

News of the unexpected findings broke at a time when countries in North America and parts of Europe were getting ready to start vaccinating their populations against the pandemic virus.

it's a very short period of time in human history that insects were somewhat under control.
we have been privileged to live through the tail end of this brief period in time.

before ddt/modern pesticides insect infestations were commonplace and destructive.
the panama canal is a good example.

clinton, in 90's, outlawed/restricted volatile compounds.

the(not so?)unintended consequence is greater insect populations and the disease they can carry.

get used to it. it's the old normal.

What I've noticed around my home is the increase in spiders.

My son and I both got bites about 3 weeks ago. The one on my arm is finally looking better.

His was pretty nasty, too.

There was one in our bathtub two days ago. Another one dropped down from the ceiling yesterday, right next to me, as I sat at my desk.

Went to empty the trash the other day, opened my side door, and two fell onto the floor--they must've been in the crevice of the door.

In the many years I have been in this home, this has never happened.

Philippines Multi-Sectoral Pandemic Disaster Exercise: How Prepared Are We?

Manila, September 10, 2012 — More than 175 representatives of Philippine public and private entities, as well as partners from select U.S. government agencies, are meeting this week to work together and strengthen the country’s overall pandemic preparedness, in a U.S. funded event that promotes a “whole-of-society” approach to mitigating pandemic events and natural disasters.

Serious infectious diseases, such as Bird Flu and Swine Flu, are emerging. Countries must consider ways to mitigate the impact and limit the damage before a pandemic event occurs with even more serious impacts.

In an effort to enhance effective regional response to public health threats, pandemic preparedness plans developed over the past year will be tested during the Multi-Sectoral Pandemic Disaster Exercise, which began today at 9 a.m. at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City.

Participants in the exercise will examine three critical elements of good governance during large-scale disasters: emergency management protocols at all levels of government; essential services that support societal infrastructures; and risk communications.

Gnats to blame for hundreds of deer deaths in NC?

CALDWELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Nearly 400 deer have been reported dead in Caldwell County in recent weeks, and experts believe it is the result of a Hemorrhagic Disease caused by a virus that is spread by gnats.

"It is not uncommon for outbreaks to occur in deer populations," said North Carolina Wildlife Resources Biologist Danny Ray. "North Carolina normally is not hit as hard as other southern states," he said.

In 2011 only 3 cases were reported in Caldwell County but experts say an early spring combined with a wet summer has made the gnat population explode and made the disease easier to spread. Ray said not all the deer infected will even show signs of sickness and most that do will survive and develop immunity to the disease.

"We sure can smell them at night," said Ira Hedrick, who lives in the area.

Those nasty Brown Recluse Spiders!

Passenger awarded $78,500 over deadly spider bite

IT'S an airline horror story to rival many others: a woman has been awarded $US80,000 ($78,500) over a mid-flight spider bite.

Brandi DeLaO, 38, was left with a hand-sized “crusty, oozing mass of dead skin” on her thigh after the incident on a Delta Airlines flight earlier this year, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

She dozed off during a flight to South Africa and woke when she felt a pinch on her thigh, later seeking medical attention when a sore developed and began "oozing".

State experiences high number of spiders, spider bites

SHAWNEE, Okla. —

Oklahoma is experiencing a higher number of black widow spider bites than usual, with approximately 60 spider bites so far this season, according to Oklahoma Poison Control.

This might be explained by the lack of extreme cold last winter, Randy Badillo, clinical director of Oklahoma Poison Control, said.

Because the winter wasn’t cold enough to kill off as many black widow spiders, there were more available to breed this spring, he added.

Black widow spider bites are up significantly from previous years.

Invasion of the giant spiders – Seattle 'under attack' from creatures painted on to buildings

It's the stuff of nightmares for arachnophobes: Giant eight-legged creatures, crawling over the rooftop of a building, seemingly waiting to pounce on their next victim.

But this is no arachnid invasion. It's an optical illusion so realistic it's enough to make the bravest soul's skin crawl.
