What is West Nile Virus?

Transmitted by mosquitoes, West Nile Virus (WNV) is a dangerous disease common in birds, humans and other mammals. Only about 25% of those infected with WNV present with symptoms. Symptoms of West Nile Virus can include fever, headache, body aches, rash or swollen lymph glands. In severe cases (less than 1%) encephalitis can occur. Symptoms of encephalitis can include high fever, stiff neck, tremors, convulsions, headache, coma, disorientation, muscle weakness or paralysis. In very few cases death can occur. There is no vaccine for West Nile Virus. If you think you may have WNV you should seek medical help immediately.

West Nile Virus Prevention

There is no specific treatment, cure or vaccine for West Nile Virus. The best weapon against WNV is prevention, which starts with avoiding mosquito bites altogether. Start by protecting your family in the space they spend most of their outdoor time, your back yard. Skip the hassle of using stinky mosquito sprays and citronella oil that offers limited protection. With seasonal protection from Mosquito Squad of Greenville, you and your family can enjoy the freedom of going in and out without giving West Nile Virus protection an extra thought.

Don’t forget to do your part in limiting mosquito reproduction by following the 5 T’s of Mosquito Control.
