New Jersey Has Found a Possible Way to Fight Mosquitos Using Fish
Because of concerns over the Zika virus, one South Jersey county has found a possible way to fight off mosquitos.
You've probably been seeing the words 'Zika virus,' more and more in the news. I know whenever I go on the Internet, reports of a new cases of the virus come up.
In Gloucester County, officials may have discovered the best way to control the mosquito population, NBC Philadelphia reports.
Their solution?: stop the mosquitos from leaving the waters where they breed with fish! The fish called Gambusia Affinis, will be released into 18 bodies of water countywide and will eat tiny mosquito eggs to reduce the population.
Pretty interesting idea! I cannot wait to find out the results especially since I am one of those people that get paranoid about any viruses that pop up in the news.
