    I took this picture at my local CVS last month (I'm in NJ), and I can't help but think that these companies will do anything to make more money, including playing on our fears.

    If I'm not mistaken the only ones that need to worry about Zika are pregnant women right?

    What ever happened to west nile disease?

    You're probably more likely to die of cancer from the bug spray, especially the old shit that actually worked but burned your skin if you used too much.

    I know, I know. As much as I have no faith in humanity, somehow it still shocks me when I see ads like this and read between the lines.

    I guess zika is the new west nile. Just like the killer bees scare decades ago. Run for the hills, they're coming north and will be here soon!

    I use it here for the pain in the ass mosquitoes too, but do they really need to play on people's fear of a disease to try and sell more bug repellent?
