There has been a terrible Dengue Fever outbreak in my area. Its really bad in the county next to mines but some people from my county have also gotten sick. I'm not sure if they got it from being in the neighboring county or not since everyone travels between the two daily.
Anyways, it so bad that they have been doing neighborhood sweeps, tipping over bird baths and any standing water. The sweeps haven't been done in my county yet. Its the worse outbreak in years or ever, not sure but its bad.
Well, a few days ago I went outside to clean my bird feeders. I haven't been out at all because of the fear of being bitten. I always get bitten for some reason. When I first moved here, I got bitten so bad that I counted 138 bites on me one time.
I thought everything was well and I was able to clean my bird feeder, in the middle of the day, without incident but today while watching TV, something itched in the back of my leg and guess what it was? A dang bite. Now I don't know if I'm going to get sick. It doesn't look like the type of bite that the huge vector mosquito gives but still, now I'm worried.....
