West Nile Virus in Warner Robins Area
The West Nile Virus has become a real threat to Middle Georgians in the past few years. In the first 5 months of 2018 there have already been 20 confirmed cases of the West Nile Virus and sadly three deaths. That number has climbed significantly since 2016 when there were only seven human cases and zero deaths according to the Georgia Department of Public Health. While we can be as careful as we can, it only takes one mosquito carrying this potentially fatal disease to infect a person.Mosquito Squad of Macon and Warner Robins takes mosquito control very seriously in their efforts to help eradicate mosquitoes and the potential dangers of the West Nile Virus. We want to protect your family, pets and all of Middle Georgia with essential preventative actions. If you are interested in learning more about how we can protect you and your family then call us to talk with one of the certified technicians about our mosquito control options.
Why the West Nile Virus is So Dangerous
The scary fact is that every year there are hundreds of people that are infected with the West Nile Virus. While the disease is typically transmitted through mosquito bites, a person can also be infected by organ transplants, blood transfusions and from mothers passing it to their babies. Elderly people are at the highest risk of being infected and the majority of people who are infected are asymptomatic (meaning they show no symptoms) while others can develop severe symptoms. Some cases have reported lifelong neurological effects. If you think you are at risk of having been infected, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Symptoms to look for include:
- Stiff neck
- High fever
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of vision
At this time there are no vaccines, cures or treatments for the West Nile Virus. Our certified technicians will come to your home and strategically apply an EPA-Registered barrier treatment for mosquito control. Our proven treatment last between 14-21 days (depending on which treatment you choose) and can eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes on your property.
