As the climate changes, the insect world is changing with it. And for people, that means dealing with diseases they can transmit. Susannah capitol reports how Georgia health agencies are trying to stay ahead of the dangers. There are more than 1200 different insects that call Georgia home, but only some of them worry scientists. Take some mosquitos. Doctor Ben beard is with the CDC division on vector borne diseases. Climate change. He says, makes ticks and mosquitos better transmitters of disease. So the pathogens that both of these can carry replicate at higher rates at warmer temperatures. We primarily test for west Nile virus. That's getting Baxter with the Fulton county board of health. He says the county's 200 mosquito traps found west Nile virus earlier than usual this year. They are now a handful of west Nile positive traps in Atlanta, so the county is treating the neighborhoods around them. They spray at night for the adult mosquitos, and they typically treat about a half a mile radius outside the area where the positive trap was found. Mosquito population growth depends a lot on how wet the weather is. For ticks, it's rising temperatures that can increase the populations. According to the CDC, ticks that can carry Lyme disease used to be mostly along Georgia's coast, but they have moved inland over the past two decades. Doctor Rosemarie Kelly is an epidemiologist with the Georgia department of public health. She says the state does surveillance of take populations, though it doesn't test for diseases. So what we're looking for is actually the vectors we're looking to see if there are potential problems in areas because the ticks that actually carry certain diseases are there. And when they find a lot of ticks in one area, they alert the public of potential for disease. Right now officials say they're not a lot of people in Georgia getting sick from vector borne diseases, but as the climate here continues to warm, then keep monitoring for changes.
