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.
Vero Beach — “Where the Tropics Begin.”
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.
Port St Lucie Hurricane Wake up Call.
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.
