Control Mosquitos

first_img Asian Tiger mosquitos are one of the most prevelant types of mosquitos in Georgia. Mosquito control is very important in stopping the spread of disease. Photo:Leonard Mustermann As spring arrives, Georgians treasure the amazing azaleas and dogwoods but dread those menacing mosquitoes. After last year’s outbreak of West Nile Virus in Georgia, many are fearing the biting problem.”The 2001 mosquito season was one of the most eventful mosquito seasons in recent memory,” said Elmer Gray, a University of Georgia Extension entomologist. West Nile Virus Ready “The rapid and widespread occurrence of the West Nile Virus this past summer,” he said, “is one of the most interesting and unique occurrences in the entomological field in a long time.”Since its discovery in the New York City area during the summer of 1999, WNV has spread from Ontario, Canada to the Florida Keys, most places in between and some beyond. While many experts predicted the disease’s spread, it would have been hard to predict how fast it would spread last summer.Fortunately, the Georgia Department of Agriculture had already begun the Georgia West Nile Task Force before the disease arrived, Gray said.”The task force had members from most of the primary parties that could and would end up being affected by the disease,” he said. “Little did any of the participants realize that Georgia would become a focal point for WNV by midsummer 2001.”Main Mosquito-borne DiseasesBefore WNV showed up in Georgia, the state’s main mosquito-borne diseases had been Eastern equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis and LaCrosse encephalitis.”While each of these diseases can be serious, debilitating and even deadly, they’re fortunately relatively rare,” Gray said.Since 1964, Georgia has had only 41 confirmed cases of Eastern equine encephalitis (23), St. Louis encephalitis (5) and LaCrosse encephalitis (13).The latest figures show that seven people died from West Nile Virus in 2001 in the United States. One of them was in Georgia, where six cases were reported. In three years nationally, the virus has killed 16 people, or 11.5 percent of the 139 human cases reported.Horses have been severely affected, with many U.S. cases and a mortality rate of about 23 percent. A vaccine has been rushed to market that should help reduce the risks to horses.”Considering these numbers and the fact that there were six human cases of WNV in Georgia in 2001, it may pose a more serious mosquito-borne risk than we have had before,” Gray said.”Unfortunately,” he said, “the surveillance and reporting of all of these diseases has been inconsistent and poorly supported during the time frames reported. With the arrival of WNV into Georgia, it’s more important than ever that the accurate and timely reporting of all mosquito-borne diseases be conducted.”Integrated Mosquito Control ImportantThe risk of WNV and the other mosquito-borne diseases can be reduced if everyone supports comprehensive and integrated mosquito control, he said. This includes education, surveillance, source reduction and, when warranted, using insecticides to kill larvae and adult mosquitoes.”Often, mosquito production occurs around our homes and properties as a result of a lack of information or diligence,” Gray said. “Mosquitoes develop in standing water. By reducing the amount of standing water, the number of adult mosquitoes that could possibly transmit disease can be reduced.”No one knows what this year’s mosquito disease season will hold.”But considering the lengthy drought Georgia has had,” Gray said, “when normal rains return, increased mosquito populations are sure to follow. Considering the new threat presented by the WNV, suppressing our state’s mosquito populations has never been more important.”For the latest information on mosquito control, contact your county Extension Service office.last_img read more

Omeruo The former internationals hold the record of the most capped Super Eagles players with 101 appearances after featuring for the West Africans for more than a decade before their retirements. Omeruo, who made his debut for the three-time African champions against Cape Verde in January 2013, has featured 52 times for the side. “It’s really a great achievement for a player to make 100 appearances for Nigeria because there are great talents in Nigeria,” Omeruo told Brila FM. “I think it’s also difficult to play that amount of games for the national team, because we have different coaches coming in, changing the team and inviting other players. “I would have made about 80 appearances if I play all the qualifiers and also considering the games that I was on the bench, but it’s about the manager and if the player is lucky with the injury.Advertisementcenter_img “It will be a great achievement for me to reach that number, but like I said it’s not in the players’ hands.” Omeruo was part of Stephen Keshi’s led Super Super Eagles team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. He was one of the standout performers for the West Africans at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where Nigeria were eliminated at the group stage.

Osimhen’s price falls as Liverpool are linked again

first_img Loading… Liverpool are back firmly on the trail of Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, and could sign the striker instead of Timo Werner, according to reports. Manchester United are in the race to sign Victor Osimhen Werner is very much top of Liverpool’s shopping list but with their board said to be opposed to splashing out significant sums this summer, the name of Osimhen has popped up as a viable alternative. That is after reports in France claimed his club Lille are now ready to sell for a reduced €45m (£40m) fee, as opposed the €80m (£72m) as had previously been reported. The Nigerian marksman, 21, has enjoyed a stellar debut season in Ligue 1, notching 18 goals across all competitions. His rapid rise has attracted the attention of many of the Premier League’s heavy hitters, with Liverpool, Man Utd and Tottenham the clubs most frequently linked. Indeed, Lille president Gerard Lopez confirmed the Premier League interest when he revealed he “turned down one English” bid in the January transfer window and that he would be seeking a fee on par with the money they received from Arsenal for Nicolas Pepe last summer. However, Le 10 Sport claims in an exclusive that Osimhen’s price is actually around the €45m mark and that talks had been held over a potential move to Liverpool this summer. That’s a claim ratified by Spanish outlet Don Balon, who also claim the knockdown fee has alerted Real Madrid to his potential signing, with the Nigeria said to favour a move to the Bernabeu above all others. This follows reports in Italy on Wednesday which also state Osimhem is also wanted by Napoli as they target a replacement for departing Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik this summer. Ttalk of a possible switch to the Premier League with Liverpool has also prompted a reaction from Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr, who admitted he’d be thrilled to see his young charge move to a bigger club. Speaking to Channels Television, Rohr said: “Victor Osimhen will have a very big opportunity to go from Lille perhaps to the Premier League or Italy to a very, very big club. “This is a success for him but also for the Super Eagles to have players at Champions League clubs. “If we have players playing at a very high level for their clubs, our level in the Super Eagles will be growing also.” read also:Victor Osimhen wins Lille’s player of the year award Wherever he ends up, it appears there’s an increasing chance that Osimhen will be the next big-money departure at Lille, though it remains to be seen if his next club will indeed be Liverpool.

Sunderland tie up Giaccherini deal

first_img He was also a part of Italy’s Confederations Cup campaign last month. Giaccherini joined Juventus from Cesena in August 2011, and went on to win back-to-back Scudetti. The attack-minded midfield man, who can play in the centre or out wide, made 40 league appearances for the Turin club, scoring four goals. During his time with Cesena, he had loan spells with Forli, Bellaria Igea and Pavia. He is the ninth player to be recruited in a busy summer for Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio, the Italian appointed in March as successor to the sacked Martin O’Neill. After keeping the Black Cats in the Barclays Premier League – they finished 17th – Di Canio has embarked upon a major overhaul of his squad, with Valentin Roberge, Modibo Diakite, Cabral, Vito Mannone, Jozy Altidore, Duncan Watmore, David Moberg Karlsson and El-Hadji Ba all being brought in prior to Giaccherini’s arrival. It is expected that more new signings will follow, while Simon Mignolet, Titus Bramble, Matt Kilgallon and Ahmed Elmohamady are among those to have left the Wearside club. Press Association The Black Cats confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Giaccherini’s switch from the Serie A champions had been completed with the 28-year-old having put pen to paper on a four-year deal. Juve have announced the fee was £6.5 million for a player who has won 14 international caps and featured at Euro 2012 last summer. center_img Sunderland have completed the signing of Italy midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini from Juventus.last_img read more

Jones: Fans have the right to boo

first_img The feel-good factor that arrived at United following Ryan Giggs’ appointment as manager disappeared on Saturday afternoon as the Welshman tasted defeat for the first time during his caretaker reign. Sebastian Larsson swept home Connor Wickham’s cross on the half-hour and United never looked like mounting a successful comeback against the Black Cats, who are now all but safe. Phil Jones admits Manchester United fans had every right to boo their team off following their 1-0 home defeat to Sunderland. United lacked urgency, width and speed. Had Emanuele Giaccherini and Fabio Borini found the net instead of the woodwork in the second half, the scoreline would have been almost embarrassing. Fans started streaming out of Old Trafford with 10 minutes to go, and a few of those who remained booed the players off – justifiably so in Jones’ eyes. “Of course they had every right to do that,” the United defender said. “You can understand that totally. They have had a difficult season. It has not been easy for them, especially here at Old Trafford. “It’s the story of our season isn’t it? You win one, but you can’t carry the form on. It’s disappointing.” Last season United lost three times at home, which was considered a poor record. But this term things have been far worse at Old Trafford. Under Giggs and David Moyes, United have been beaten seven times in the league at home. That is the club’s worst home record since the 1973-74 season, when United were relegated. Press Association Jones admits he and his team-mates cannot afford to have such a woeful record on home turf next term. “We are up at the top of the table on away form, but the home form for whatever reason has not been as good,” the England defender said. “It’s caught us out and that’s something next season we really nail down and work on.” With Louis van Gaal reportedly set to be appointed next week, United have one more chance to register a home win against Hull on Tuesday. The match could be a significant one for a number of reasons. Nemanja Vidic will play his final game at Old Trafford. For Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra – both of whom are out of contract this summer – it could be their last home game too. And it may well be the last time United fans get a glimpse of Giggs for a while as he has not been assured that he will figure in Van Gaal’s plans – either as a player or coach. Ticker tape and champagne usually follow United’s final home match of the season, but even though that will not be the case this term, Jones still wants to end the year on a high. “We can’t afford to make it flat,” he said. “We have to lift ourselves again and win the game for the fans.” Sunderland, who claimed their first win at Old Trafford for 46 years, are likely to have reason to celebrate on Wednesday following their penultimate home game of the season against West Brom. Just three weeks after being seven points from safety at the foot of the table, Sunderland are within touching distance of guaranteeing their Premier League status. “It’s been an incredible few weeks,” Sunderland manager Gus Poyet said. “Beating (Chelsea boss) Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge for the first time, winning at Manchester United, drawing at Manchester City, and beating Cardiff… it has been unbelievable. “The players never gave up.” Poyet believes Premier League player of the month Wickham, who has scored five goals in his last four games, has been key to Sunderland’s revival. “He has given us something special,” said Poyet of the 21-year-old striker, who had loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds earlier this season. “He scored the goals we could not find. He is on fire. “A player with his physique and his ability can go wherever he wants.” last_img read more
