Protect Your Family from West Nile Virus with Mosquito Squad
For those who love the outdoors, there is nothing like taking in fresh air while gardening or gathering around a fire pit with friends under the stars. However, pests like mosquitoes can make being outside an annoyance, leaving you irritated with itchy bites for days. With West Nile Virus, a mosquito-borne illness, being a potential threat to you and your loved ones, it is important to get protection.
West Nile Virus can be passed from mosquitoes to humans through a simple bite. Though 70%-80% of bite victims experience no symptoms, when they do, it can be dangerous. Symptoms include headaches, body aches, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea and rashes. In rare cases, those who contract this virus can get encephalitis or meningitis. People with preexisting conditions like diabetes and cancer need to especially avoid being bitten because their risk for complications with West Nile Virus is higher.
Right now there is no vaccine or antiviral remedy for West Nile Virus. The best protection you can get for you and your family is to free your property from as many mosquitoes as possible.
Though you may already take measures of prevention to reduce mosquito breeding by dumping standing water and clearing your yard of debris, nature still finds a way. Mosquito eggs and larvae are incredibly resilient and need just the smallest pool of water to hatch and grow, so their numbers are difficult to control without professional help.
One of the most effective ways you can control the mosquito population is by scheduling regular barrier control treatments from Mosquito Squad of Greater Austin. This method eliminates up to 90% of all mosquitoes on your property. Barrier control treatments last up to three weeks and with regular treatments on your property, you can enjoy a pest-free yard all season long.
