West Nile Virus Protection
West Nile Virus (WNV) is a real danger in the Columbus area and throughout the United States. A mosquito carrying the virus can wreak havoc, so preventing and protecting against mosquitoes on your property is vital. The Mosquito Squad® of North Columbus offers essential preventative measures to protect you and your family from contracting this virus at your home.
The Dangers of West Nile Virus
Each year, hundreds of unassuming individuals contract WNV while outdoors. Though transmission can also occur via organ transplant, blood transfusion and from pregnant mom to infant, mosquitoes are the biggest culprit. Most people are asymptomatic, but for those that do develop symptoms, they can be severe. In some cases, a person may even suffer permanent neurological effects. The elderly are at particular risk of the damaging effects of WNV.
Symptoms that can be associated with West Nile Virus:
- Stiff neck
- High fever
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of vision
Most alarming is the fact that there is currently no vaccine, cure or treatment for this virus, highlighting the need for preventative measures against mosquitoes on your property.
West Nile Virus Prevention
Your best offense against contracting WNV is to avoid being bitten by an infected mosquito. This involves eliminating mosquitoes around your property by eliminating breeding areas and getting a barrier control treatment for your outdoor areas.
