Arthro-Pod EP 52 West Nile virus and Mosquitoes


Howdy, howdy bug lovers! On today's episode of Arthro-Pod, the whole gang gets together for some discussion on mosquitoes and mosquito vectored disease. 


Up front there is discussion of insect themed music and what is good and what is bad. Then some coverage on mosquito biology and a focus on West Nile virus. This disease has been a big issue in the Nebraska area in 2018 so we dissect the symptoms and how people can protect themselves!
