Mosquito Control in Fenton, Michigan
While you may not realize, there are bugs all through your yard, and some of them are just waiting to bite you, including mosquitoes. The itchy welts the bug causes are a nuisance, but the real trouble lies within the fact that these nuisances can carry disease.
In Michigan, the West Nile Virus is the more common issue spread by mosquitoes. You could be one of the fortunate ones that experience no symptoms. While being asymptomatic is common, you still have a risk of serious illness. Some people only experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, headaches, and chills for a few days. For others, the symptoms linger on for months. In the more severe cases, the infection causes encephalitis -- swelling of the brain that can result in seizures or a coma.
Michigan mosquitoes also transmit eastern equine encephalitis. This virus may lead to brain swelling, seizures, and disorientation. Most commonly, it affects children under 15 as well as adults older than 50. It affects mammals, so horses, dogs, or cats that are outdoors could contact it as well. In rare cases, the illness is fatal.
