Most of us know about the mosquito and West Nile virus problem in North Texas, specifically the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. As I heard the planes spraying over areas last night, it got me thinking about mosquitos in the world of "The Walking Dead". Since mosquitos transmit viruses and other little pesky microscopic critters, it would be a problem. Since "The Walking Dead" is set in the South, I would say you have a big problem. Well, It's more of a problem if your close to a populated area of walkers.
We all know that everyone who is still alive is infected with the dormant zombie virus until it activates after death. As we've seen and heard, a walker bite will kill and turn the victim quicker. So logic says, a mosquito that has bitten a walker carrying the activated virus will eventually activate the virus in a living person. Hmmm... Not only do you need weapons, but now you have to search for mosquito repellent. Or, just hope for a very long and cold winter. That really sucks.
