Staying updated with mosquito control and concerns around Massachusetts is AllGreen’s first priority. We want to keep our customers informed of the dangers these insects create and provide solutions for these problems as they arise.
According to the Concord Monitor, West Nile was found in mosquitoes collected in Manchester, NH. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services tests various populations of mosquitoes around the state throughout the season to track the progression of this disease, and two batches tested positive in the state’s largest city. It has yet to be reported if any animals or people have contracted the virus in the area, as well.
West Nile often causes flu-like symptoms and can be extremely dangerous if not treated properly. The threat of this virus can vary from year to year depending on the climate conditions which can support or diminish mosquito populations. With mosquitoes being the most formidable transmitters of disease on the planet, we work every season to learn about their potential spread of disease across New England.
What steps can you take to prevent West Nile virus?
On a basic level, insect replant is a good temporary solution. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) also suggests avoiding the outdoors during dawn or dusk, repairing screens around your home, and eliminating standing water from your yard. These quick fixes can work, but protecting your loved ones and pets every time they step out of your home can feel impossible. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be.
