Zika Prevention

Zika Virus Protection in Orlando

The latest public health crisis is a mosquito-borne disease called Zika virus. Carried by the Aedes mosquito species, Zika has now reached the US, and cases have been reported in various parts of Florida. Though the disease is alarming, there are steps you can take to minimize your risk. Mosquito Squad of Orlando can help protect you and your family from mosquitoes and the potentially dangerous diseases they can carry with our mosquito control services.

What Are the Risks?

The Kaiser Foundation reports that there have been confirmed cases of travel-associated Zika virus in 47 US states. As of summer 2016, Florida is the only state reporting locally contracted cases. In most people, Zika symptoms are typically mild and may include fever, rash, joint or muscle pain and headache. However, Zika can pose a great risk to unborn children. Pregnant women infected with Zika can pass the disease to the fetus, causing severe birth defects, including a condition called microcephaly in which the baby’s head is too small and the brain is underdeveloped. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also reports that a rare disease of the nervous system, called Guillain-Barré syndrome, may also be connected with Zika virus.

How Can I Prevent It?

Currently, there is no vaccine or treatment options to combat against Zika. In order to reduce your risk of contracting the dangerous disease, you need to minimize your contact with mosquitoes. To control the mosquito population on your property, a barrier control treatment from Mosquito Squad of Orlando can reduce mosquitoes at your home by up to 90%. The treatment provides continuous protection for up to 21 days by eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact, disrupting the mosquito life cycle. For high-risk areas, we also offer an automatic misting system for season-long, worry-free mosquito and disease prevention.
