I don’t know about you but when I hear the word ‘plague’ my mind instantly goes back to the 14th century during medieval times and the ‘black death’ that spread through Europe killing millions; I certainly don’t think about modern-day America. The truth is, as scary as it is, the plague still exists today. In fact, there have been 17 confirmed cases of plague in the U.S. from 2005-2014, and 8 of those were in 2014. So far this year, there have been 4 reported cases in Colorado alone resulting in 2 deaths – the latest being on August 5! While this disease has not reached epidemic proportions for certain, the numbers indicate that it is surely on the rise especially in the western U.S.

Colorado has awakened to the realization that the dreaded mosquito season is in full swing and rainy days certainly haven't helped the situation.
