  Mosquitos can be a pesky problem, but they can sometimes be more than a nuisance. They can also carry and transmit diseases to humans. One mosquito-borne virus in particular has been in recent news: the Zika virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been 312 cases in the United States, one in Kentucky and nine in Ohio, with one being in Butler County.
