If you’ve watched the news in the last few days or even weeks, you’ve probably heard the mentioning of West Nile virus. Most recently, according to a recent article on The State, “West Nile virus has been found in downtown Columbia bird”. While the virus hasn’t been found in a person as of yet, it’s certainly concerning. While you can’t control the entire city’s mosquito population, you can call the professionals at Mosquito Squad of Columbia to control it
within your yard.
To be precise, a deceased bird was found at the corner of Sumter and Hampton streets in downtown Columbia. An area that’s ripe with homes, businesses and nighttime hangout locations. The reason for the concern is that West Nile is transmitted from birds to mosquitoes, then mosquitoes are capable of transmitting the virus to those upon which they feed. It’s caused enough concern for city officials to set mosquito traps within the downtown area in order to test them for West Nile.
