Rutherford Ride Alongs
Today I joined Anastasia Mosquito Control District (AMCD) in St. Johns County for another Rutherford Ride Along!
 
As Floridians, we understand how important it is to control the population of mosquitos, which can deliver life-threatening disease in a single bite. In fact, mosquitoes are responsible for killing nearly one million humans a year and account for the spread of 17% of the world’s infectious diseases. Right here in Northeast Florida, we are leading the nation in research, testing, and mosquito control methods.
 
Thank you to AMCD Director Dr. Rui-De Xue, Commissioner Trish Becker, and all the outstanding staff and experts at the state-of-the-art AMCD facilities. Your work is saving lives everyday in Northeast Florida and around the world.
