Zika virus must be stopped now

To the editor:

The Zika Virus

This is a horrible affliction and we need to figure a way to stop it immediately.

Luckily, we have just such a method. Years ago, we could kill mosquitoes easily. Do the letters DDT mean anything to you? This is absolute death to mosquitoes and it lasts a long time.

We used it everywhere. Farms, cities, all over. It actually lasted too long, we stopped using it and we should have.

However, when you have mosquitoes hurting people in a minute area, we need to bring it back in that tiny area. Doing this will not harm our environment like years ago. It never did hurt people.

We could “nip it in the bud” in an extremely small area, thereby saving much spraying and repeated spraying over large areas with today’s chemicals.

Simple, it just needs to be done.
