Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up on the first part of the show- on this first day of summer we we are reaching the peak of mosquito seaeon. And here in Florida mosquitoes can cause several deadly diseases. Weâ€™ll talk in a moment about how you can protect yourself. But first- four listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s show. Yesterday we began with an interview with The New Yorkerâ€™s George Packer whoâ€™s written a new book- The Unwinding-about the decline of the middle class in the US. One of the communities he writes about is Tampa Bay. â€¦ That led to a discussion about Walmart and other giant retailers. Here;â€™s what four listeners had to say.
Today is the first day of summer. The rainy season is underway and the mosquito population is exploding. Three dangerous diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes in this part of Florida- Eastern equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, and West Nile fever. On the first part of todayâ€™s program weâ€™ll talk with a mosquito expert: Glen-Paul Edson is Assistant District Operations Managerâ€¦. Pinellas County Mosquito Control' FMI (727) 464-7503
