I know all of you have been bitten by mosquitoes. We know they are out there and, according to the WHO, there are over 1 million deaths worldwide from mosquito-borne diseases every year. It’s just part of life. There is nothing you can do to guarantee you will never get bit. 

Getting bit is not a death sentence but it could be knowing there are Zika, West Nile, malaria and St. Louis encephalitis. Mosquitoes have been around at least since Noah and the Ark. So we take precautions like limit our exposure outdoors, cover up or apply repellent. If you get bit and get sick or die, whose fault is it? Who can you blame? Who can you sue? Who can you impeach?
