With the Zika virus on the horizon for the US, West Nile already problematic and conditions in our area that really encourage heavy mosquito populations, there's no better time than to get ahead of the problem. Contact me about starting to handle your mosquito pest problems this spring. Every three weeks we can do an application to keep you, your family and your pets in much better shape.
Here's how the CDC characterizes the Zika Virus.....
"Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon." Yet, the more the CDC studies, the more problems they are finding.
I don't want this post to come across as fear mongering, but more informative. Although there's not a complete remedy for 100% protection from Zika or any other blood borne illness, being proactive is a step towards things within our control. I hope this is helpful to you!
