Summer is the season for the mosquitoes spreading Zika Virus to breed, multiply, and thus infect more of the person. Such illnesses are on the rise all across the globe.

As per the reports released by the city officials in Pasadena on Monday, eggs of the disease carrying agents have been seen. However, no case of human illnesses has been reported so far.

Dead birds and animals have been removed at the earliest in order to avoid breeding of the mosquitoes. Breeding ponds have been sprayed with larvicide briquettes to stop the presence of these mosquitoes.
Apart from the deadly heat, rainfall is proving to be a breeding ground for these Zika Virus mosquitoes.
