There is a plethora of articles and studies regarding the emerging and rapidly spreading mosquito borne Zika virus vectored by the Aedes egyptii mosquito. This article focuses on the methods used for mosquito control to reduce the the spread of mosquito borne viruses such as dengue, malaria and Zika virus with speculation regarding the origin and spread of the Zika virus. Other sources of what may have caused the same results as the Zika virus are explored, i.e., what chemicals in the water or crops may have polluted the water or infected the mosquitos through cross-transmission from crops to mosquitoes to simian species to humans that may result in deformities and neurological damage?
