Unique Lawn Care Protects Your Family from Mosquito-Borne Illnesses
West Nile Virus (WNV)
The most widely known and widely spread is the West Nile Virus (WNV). While most cases of WNV are mild and go unnoticed and unreported, symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, skin rash, and swollen lymph nodes. Most people with this virus recover completely, but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months.
Zika virus is mainly spread through the bite of a mosquito. For most people, it’s a very mild infection and is not harmful. However, it may potentially be more serious for pregnant women as there is evidence it causes unwanted complications and birth defects. Symptoms of the Zika virus may include a high fever, headache, joint pain, muscle pain, itching all over the body, red eyes, and pain behind the eyes.
Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is an extremely rare but sometimes fatal infection that can cause inflammation of the brain. Symptoms of EEE generally occur four to 10 days after a person has been infected and include a high fever, headache, tiredness, nausea, vomiting, and neck stiffness. EEE can also infect a wide range of animals, including mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
How Can We Protect Ourselves From These Bloodthirsty Insects?
Aside from staying indoors completely or wearing a full-bodied mosquito net, there are several ways you can naturally help to prevent mosquitoes from taking over your lawn. These include:
Remove any standing water. Standing water is where mosquitoes breed. Cleaning out your gutters, and removing tarps or debris where ever water collects can help prevent female mosquitoes from having places to hatch their larvae.
Build a bat house. Bats are natural repellents. In just one hour, a bat can eat hundreds of insects.Use a fan. Because mosquitoes are lightweights, a fan blowing at a speed of two miles per hour will overpower any mosquitoes flying nearby.
Wear lighter clothing. Certain types of mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors such as black, red, and blue.
Avoid scents. Avoid wearing scented lotions or perfumes as certain scents attract mosquitoes.
