the Deadliest Animal in the World & Buck versus Motorcyclist

This video is not for the faint of heart

Q What is the deadliest animal in the world?

A: The mosquito. It has been estimated that mosquitos transmit diseases to almost 700 million people annually resulting in 2 to 3 million deaths every year. Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes include: malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, chikungunya, yellow fever, filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, Saint Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis and Zika fever.

Encephalitis: colloquially referred to as “sleeping sickness”. It causes an inflammation of the brain that can cause the afflicted person to slip into a coma. About 10,000 to 20,000 cases of encephalitis are reported each year in the United States. Fortunately there are few fatalities. The very young and the elderly are, of course, most at risk of death from encephalitis.

Another deadly critter in the USA is the deer tick. Especially in the Northeastern American states. Expect an uptick of Lyme’s disease throughout the land this coming year.

A significant downside of the mild winter weather in most of the continental United States this past season is that there will likely be a bumper crop of annoying bugs this summer. More crop pests too.

Lyme disease is set to explode and we still don’t have a vaccine

A new prediction says 2017 and 2018 will see major Lyme disease outbreaks in new areas. This could lead to lifelong health consequences, so where's the vaccine? Lyme Disease.

“Lyme disease is the most common disease spread by ticks in the Northern Hemisphere. It is estimated to affect 300,000 people a year in the United States and 65,000 people a year in Europe. Infections are most common in the spring and early summer. Lyme disease was diagnosed as a separate condition for the first time in 1975 in Old Lyme, Connecticut. It was originally mistaken for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The bacterium involved was first described in 1981 by Willy Burgdorfer. Chronic symptoms are well described and are known as post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, although it is often called chronic Lyme disease. Some healthcare providers claim that it is due to ongoing infection; however, this is not believed to be true.[16] A previous vaccine is no longer available. Research is ongoing to develop new vaccines.” Viral encephalitis - University of Maryland Medical Center

I think it's possible to wipe mosquitos out. I wonder what the ramifications of that would be? Would it destroy some food chain? Let some other worse species overpopulate? It would be great to do away with them.
