We have over 12 years of experience in the mosquito control industry, giving us the expertise needed to guarantee that our mosquito misting systems are efficient at eliminating the potential threats of mosquitoes. While mosquitoes are usually only considered a nuisance, there’s a growing concern of their dangers as they now have the possibility of carrying the West Nile Virus.

What Is the West Nile Virus?

The West Nile Virus is a virus that’s generally spread by mosquitoes. The infection varies in severity, with some people who are afflicted by the West Nile Virus not even knowing that they have it. In severe cases though, the virus can affect the spinal cord and the brain. Most people will fully recover from the virus, though in some cases, the person may end up with permanent problems like memory loss, seizures, or brain damage. In rare occasions, a person may even die from it.

What You Can Do to Prevent This

The West Nile Virus is a disease that has been spreading rapidly and increasing in reported cases year after year. While it isn’t a very common disease in Texas, it’s still something that you should be aware of. Even though mosquitoes usually pick up this disease by biting infected birds (and the mosquitoes can infect other animals as well), you’re really only at risk of the virus through mosquitoes.

This is why it’s critical to take care of any mosquito problem you may have to ensure that you won’t be infected by the West Nile Virus. Our mosquito misting systems are guaranteed to eliminate any pesky mosquitoes, whether they’re carrying the virus or not. By having our mosquito systems installed and taking the proper precautions, you can protect yourself from the dangers of the West Nile Virus.
