Triple-E detected

As usually happens this time of year, Triple-E, or Eastern Equine Encephalitis has been detected in mosquitos from the ponds in the area. Samples were taken only yards from the gunclub.
Now, this is nothing new this time of year, but the numbers of mosquitos carrying the disease is markedly higher.
Triple-E is considered the most serious of mosquito borne diseases, and reportedly carries a 60% mortality rate. I don't usually like dousing myself in chemical repellents, but this disease is worthy of respect..

Be careful out there..
