Treasure Coast Dengue Mosquitoes – Morphed from Pest to Danger.
As a Vero Beach tile contractor who often works in homes open to the outdoors, I have become something of an expert on the behavior of Treasure Coast mosquitoes. I recently read an article written by an authority on Dengue Fever describing the behavior of the mosquitoes that carries that disease. They are the same gals that I have to deal with regularly. These mosquitoes are really smart and fast. They hide from the light, tend to hit still targets, and attack and bite quickly and then go back to hiding.
Located in Indian River County, Vero Beach is part of a four-county region called the Treasure Coast. The region was so named because of the numerous Spanish treasure ships that sunk off its shores. Other treasures exist in Vero Beach that are more easily found.
During the ongoing building recession that started in 2007, general contractors built very few new homes in Port St. Lucie. That was just part of the worst economic crisis in decades that sent an economic aftershock rippled through the area’s residential construction industries. It affected everyone from building contractors to tile setters. Those skilled laborers who had no roots here and could leave St. Lucie County did just that. Of those who stayed, only the strong survived.
Ceramic tile offers unmatched beauty, durability and practicality for Port St. Lucie residents. Tile is one of the most durable and maintenance friendly surfaces you can choose for your floors. It will retain its original beauty and luster for years.
Easy to clean, tile is perfect for areas where spills occur or become dirty from heavy traffic. Tile flooring harbors no dust mites, pollen, mold or mildew that can cause allergic reactions. Being resistant to mold and mildew, tile floors are perfect for bathrooms. Where heavy duty cleaning occurs daily and where hardwood or laminate floors are not practical, tile flooring meets the challenge.

If you are a Florida tile setter and working this Labor Day, consider yourself lucky. While the national unemployment rate is currently at 6.2 percent, the unemployment rate on Florida’s Treasure Coast is near 6.4 percent. The outbreak of the U.S. sub-prime mortgage crisis and financial crisis of 2007–08 that brought on the the global recession of 2009 is having a continued influence into 2014.
The first named Atlantic tropical storm of the 2014 season, Tropical Storm Arthur, formed off Florida’s Treasure Coast this morning. It will move north to northeast along the East Coast over the next few days, according to the National Hurricane Center. A tropical storm watch is in effect for the east coast of Florida from Fort Pierce to Flagler Beach.
A steady increase in southwesterly steering flow over the southeastern United States is expected to gradually turn the tropical cyclone northward over the next 24-36 hours, and then accelerate the system faster toward the northeast on Thursday and Friday.
Back in 2013, Florida crossed over from lagging behind the national recovery to getting out in front. The decline in unemployment from 8.0 percent in January 2013 to 6.1 percent in January 2014 was driven by new jobs. The state’s labor force showed a small increase of 29,000, but the number of unemployed declined by 172,000.
Those statistics were impressive for the state of Florida, as a whole, but St. Lucie County didn’t, for the most part, take part in that growth. Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce’s economy remained stagnant.
Why settle for ordinary when you can create a striking look with back splash tile? A tiled kitchen back-splash is a great addition to any home. It is functional, decorative and a personality piece that can serve as the kitchen’s focal point. Its installation is an opportunity to be creative.
As it is the focal point of many homes, even the most cost-conscious homeowner may decide to add a stylish touch to their kitchen. If you’re in the process of designing a kitchen or bathroom, consider the versatility and elegance backsplash tile has to offer. A tiled backsplash will protect kitchen walls from moisture and reduce mold, mildew and bacteria formations. All tile materials are heat resistant and would function well behind the stove.
