Zika Virus Step 9 in prevention of infection from the Zika Virus. Apply healthy micro-organisms and nematodes to the lawn and garden area to feast on insects and larvae. Lab tests are conclusive that fungus-exposed mosquitoes lived for significantly shorter periods than uninfected mosquitoes. Additionally, the larvae survival rate is also greatly reduced.

The staff at Zinger Hardware recommend the use of Micro Life organic fertilizer for healthy soil control of insects. The short answer is Mother Nature has two extremes of soil content: Bacterial based and Fungal based. In a bacterial based state, Mother Nature promotes the growth of weeds and nasty insects. In a fungal based soil, weeds and nasty insects are reduced and the carbon transfer to plants increases, causing a healthier environment. You have just learned Scott’s fertilizer’s secret: Add salt to the soil and keep the environment in an unnatural bacterial state. Why would a company do this? Simpy put, you will in desperation buy weed and fire ant killer.
In a fungal state, insects are reduced and used as food for healthy micro organisms. Mother Nature provides a life cycle that we need to promote and sustain to beat the mosquito population. So in Step 9, I recommend the addition of microbial and nematodes to the soil for reducing the environment in which the insects like to breed. I am going to repeat myself – “Lab tests are conclusive that Fungus-exposed mosquitoes lived for significantly shorter periods than uninfected mosquitoes”.
