Earlier this month, a rare disease was reported in two states. With little known about the disease, researchers are confident that transmittal occurred from a mosquito bite. As if there wasn’t enough to worry about in 2020, now we’re adding a new reason for MA mosquito control. More than ever before, preventive measures and treatments are a must.



Two cases confirmed

The first of the two cases came from New Hampshire. The second case was confirmed in Michigan. While there are no reported cases here in Massachusetts, our neighbors are a bit too close for comfort. Known as the Jamestown Canyon virus, most cases are reported in the Northeast and Midwest.



The symptoms

In both instances of this rare disease, patients incurred similar symptoms, including fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and headaches. However, the onset is not sudden. After the bite occurs, it can take up to two weeks for the infected individual to begin to show signs of infection. Severe cases can result in meningitis and encephalitis.



MA mosquito control is a must

With earlier than usual reported cases of EEE, now Jamestown Canyon virus making its appearance, 2020 is proving to be a crucial year for mosquito control and prevention. Beyond the repellent, individuals need to educate themselves on the best preventative measures to protect themselves, family, and even pets.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mosquitoes are not only pesky but also one of the world’s deadliest creatures. Each year, the number of severe West Nile Virus increases while presenting new obstacles, such as the occurrence of 2020’s rare disease. However uncommon in New England, other areas of the world face tremendous risks of dengue and lymphatic filariasis.

The best method of prevention is to avoid bites from potentially infected mosquitos.
