Throughout the United States, there are tons of trends that are occurring, the latest fashion trend, the newest diet, and so on. One of the more unfortunate trends that is occurring is illegal dumping. Dumping is a disgusting trend that not only threatens the life of our environment but also threatens the lives of the people.
Dumpsites provide a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. When people illegally dump scrap tires, they collect water, which is an ideal mosquito breeding ground. According to Cumberland YES, mosquitoes can breed 100 times faster than normal in the warm and wet environment that illegally dumped tires provide for them. This is a major problem because mosquitoes are one of the deadliest disease-carrying insects out there.
Mosquitoes can carry Malaria, Zika, the West Nile Virus, and so many more deadly diseases. When illegal dumping takes place, mosquitoes grow in number and spread all different kinds of diseases to people.
