Yellow Fever Mosquito discovered in San Diego

As if Ebola and the Enterovirus weren’t enough, it’s time to add Yellow Fever to your list of California health care concerns

San Diego County officials on Tuesday said the black-and-white striped Aedes aegypti, or yellow fever mosquito, was recently found in offices at the 32nd Street Naval Station.\

It's uncertain how the tropical species got there but it's previously shown up in Central California and in two Los Angeles County cities.

If anyone wants to fes up to letting a tropical mosquito into the office, now is the time. Anyone?

Experts say the mosquito is aggressive and bites during the day. It's capable of spreading yellow fever, dengue fever and chikungunya.
