Chicago faces its worst mosquito outbreak in 20 years
August 18, 2010
Extraordinarily heavy rainfall tracking all across the Midwest, combined with a growing problem of foreclosed homes that are falling into at least mild disrepair, has created the worst mosquito outbreak in 20 years
for Chicagoland, and public-health officials are trying to control the problem with the help of spray repellents. But mosquitoes are known to hatch in large numbers wherever stagnant water is found, including drainage ditches, unattended recreational pools, and ponds. We offer portable submersible pumps
to help drain those stagnant bodies of water and help protect public health. Mosquitoes must have stagnant water
in order for their eggs to develop into adults. If the stagnant water is removed, the mosquitoes can't spread.
