The emergence of Zika virus last year continues to be a widespread public health concern. The hospitality industry is especially affected as travel is one of the primary ways the virus is spread. Mosquitoes are among the most dangerous animals, capable of transmitting serious diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, West Nile virus, Chikungunya and most recently Zika. As hotels across the country continue to experience high occupancy rates, it’s important to ensure you and your staff are prepared to help protect your guests and bottom line from mosquitoes.

During this hour, you’ll learn critical information about conducive conditions contributing to mosquito activity and how to take preventive measures around your property.
