A case of #WestNileVirus, not to be confused with the lesser potent West Nile Fever has been reported in the Houston area. This news puts most of us on alert; we need to take as many precautions as possible against contracting this illness. The City of Sugar Land is doing their part by increasing once weekly mosquito spraying to twice weekly.

Humans get this virus from #mosquitoes who have feasted on infected birds, then deliver the infection to us by biting our skin. Symptoms include a stiff neck, vision problems, body tremors, mental confusion, memory loss, and seizures. The combination of these symptoms warrants a visit to a clinic or your doctor. Unfortunately, there is no real treatment to prevent West Nile Virus infection aside from not getting bitten. The good news is that 80% of those who are infected have no symptoms and will recover on their own. However, the over 50 crowd and those folks with compromised immune systems need to treat the situation more seriously.

Mosquitoes have a schedule: early dawn, dusk, and late night are the worst because that is when they lay their eggs. They are prolific creatures and the very best way to mitigate the problem is spraying repellent at those specific times to kill and #RepelMosquitoes. Daylight is not their favorite time. It tends to dehydrate them, so dawn, dusk, and dark are perfect times for mosquitoes to be out and active. That and temperature. Contrary to popular belief, winter cold does not kill off all mosquitoes. Some hibernate and wake up and become active when temperatures begin to rise over 50°F.

The first thing to consider is clothing – yes, I know it’s still too hot and humid for pants. There is a website selling mosquito-repellant shorts and also shirts, pants, and jackets for men and women. But the clothes we own are tried and true: regular long pants, long-sleeve shirts, jackets, and socks, then apply the final layer; mosquito repellant spray.

Remember also to frequently patrol outdoor areas around your home where there might be standing water, especially after it rains. Even a bottle cap full will allow mosquitoes to breed. Don’t forget to check for water dripping from spigots or an AC unit. And check your garbage, gardens, and compost heaps. Mosquitoes love to breed in those spaces, especially when there is standing water.

It would be helpful if community businesses and municipal governments would help lower the risk of West Nile Virus by regularly applying repellant around their dumpsters. Restaurants, grocery stores, garbage, and wastewater transfer stations are all prime mosquito territory that should be sprayed routinely to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and make it safer for the public.

I’ve successfully used Deep Woods mosquito repellant on my patio which when applied, was good for about four hours, long enough for an outdoor party. But it’s expensive buying can after can, and it’s very impractical. I’m not really going to get up early every morning and spray, then respray each day at dusk, and certainly not in the middle of the night. I suspect you won’t either.

Homeowners can help themselves by installing a good quality mosquito repellant system. We recommend the #HydroBreeze Automated #MosquitoControlSystem. It’s incredibly affordable and very efficient keeping your turf mosquito-free by up to 650FT when applied as directed. When you set up and install the system, you will discover that it is already automatically timed to spray three times daily, once early morning, again at dusk, then again during the night. These are times when mosquitoes are the most active and laying their eggs. The System includes #VectorBan mosquito repellent made from 10% Permethrin, which is misted into the air killing and repelling mosquitoes and their eggs, keeping your backyard safe with residual activity for up to 28 days. At the same time, it is safe for people and pets.

Right now, we are offering a special price for our #MosquitoControlSystem and adding #FreeService for 12 months. The free service means, if you need new tubing, new nozzles, or other parts for your Mosquito Control Misting System during the 12 months from the date of purchase, we’ll provide them for free. We also offer an installation service in the Greater Houston area. It’s a DIY system, but if you don’t have the time to install it, we can help you!

Here’s to everyone keeping safe and West Nile-Anything-Free.
