Zika virus has phones ringing at pest control, travel firms


Some small U.S. companies are getting an influx in calls — and in some cases, unexpected business — because of fears about the Zika virus.

The virus often produces either no symptoms or mild ones like fever in adults, but an outbreak in Brazil has been linked to a rare birth defect that causes a newborn’s head to be smaller and brain development issues. Outbreaks also have been reported in parts of Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific islands, and the Americas.
