Protect Your Family from West Nile Virus in Fall River

Posted by Mosquito Squad

It was reported last week that West Nile Virus was discovered in a mosquitoes sample in Fall River. The Bristol County Mosquito Control Project reacted with an immediate decision to mist the area surrounding St. Patrick’s Cemetery where the mosquitoes sample was collected. They misted on Friday morning in that area, a great first step. But for those of us who don’t live in that area, some West Nile Virus protection is definitely needed, before you or your family becomes exposed to this dangerous disease.

West Nile Virus Prevention in Fall River

While human cases of West Nile Virus are rare, it is a dangerous disease that can be deadly. Just the other day the first human case of West Nile Virus was confirmed in Middlesex County. The patient is currently hospitalized and the Massachusetts Department of Health is investigating to determine when and where he was exposed. While Middlesex isn’t here, it is way too close for comfort. If you think you may have symptoms of West Nile Virus call your doctor immediately. Keeping yourself and your family protected against West Nile Virus means lowering your exposure to mosquitoes and lowering your risk for mosquito bites.

While you can limit your outdoor activity near dusk and after dark when mosquitoes are most active, that will only get you so far. The day feeding Asian Tiger Mosquito is known to carry West Nile Virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses. Here at Mosquito Squad we want you to be able to enjoy your yard any time day or night without fearing the repercussions of illnesses that can be transmitted my mosquitoes. A pest free outdoor life style is important for getting the most activity and enjoyment out of spring, summer and fall in Massachusetts.

Eliminate up to 90% of Mosquitoes in your Fall River Yard

We can eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes in your Fall River yard with our traditional barrier treatment. Here is how it works: our highly trained mosquito control applicators will start at the perimeter of your property misting down the trees, shrubbery and underbrush paying special attention to areas with high moisture where mosquitoes will certainly be hanging out. And unlike some other mosquito control services we work our way inward misting your entire yard. Mosquitoes can be in the grass, near your gutters or under the shrubs near your front porch and we don’t want to miss a single one.

Our mosquito repellant has a special time-released formula so that it continues to work for up to 21 days, keeping your yard mosquito free for three weeks so you don’t even have to think about it. Better yet, sign up for the season and we’ll automatically come back, without any effort on your part, right at the 3 week mark to make sure we help to keep your yard protected from mosquitoes. West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and other mosquito-borne illnesses can be very dangerous, so it is vital that you protect yourself and your family in your own yard. Don’t forget the 5 T’s of mosquito control to do your part in limiting the mosquito population in your yard.
