As the copious amounts of water that fell across Texas finally dried up, more and more mosquitoes made their way into our neighborhoods and farms. In a recent article, the increase in the mosquito population has led to more cases of mosquito borne diseases in horses.

The article states, “The Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) has confirmed West Nile Virus in a horse located in south Texas and additional cases of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in horses residing in east Texas.” Mosquito Squad of Victoria’s mosquito misting systems can help to reduce the likelihood of your horses coming into contact with potentially disease carrying bloodsuckers.

No horse is immune to West Nile Virus, and it comes with a 40% mortality rate. As with EEE, since it attacks the brain of the horse, has a much higher mortality rate. Mosquito misting systems by MistAway are fully capable of keeping areas where your horses are boarded clear of mosquitoes. You can customize the layout of your misting system so that sprays are conducted at anytime you wish, and can even have misting systems in different locations. That’s the greatest fact about the MistAway system, it can be completely customized and can even be operated off-site via the use of the iMistAway app in the apps store on your smartphone.
