Here at NEO Mosquito Control we offer Natural and Synthetic programs in a constant effort to provide all of our customers with the best possible solutions for their property. Approximately every 4 weeks, NEO Mosquito Control will mist your property to control disease-carrying mosquitoes, ticks and other annoying pests. This is the most effective way to control insects and protect your family and pets from diseases like:
Zika virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These are the same mosquitoes that spread dengue and chikungunya viruses.
Unfortunately, those most at risk of Zika virus are mothers and unborn babies. Scientists and health officials have confirmed that Zika virus is connected to microcephaly and Guillain-Barre Syndrome, two neurological birth defects known to cause brain damage and disability. Several sexually transmitted cases of Zika have been confirmed in the U.S. as well.
There is no treatment or vaccine for Zika virus, so the best way to protect yourself is to guard against mosquito bites. Mosquito control services such as our barrier treatments will dramatically reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, protecting you and your family for up to 21 days at a time.
There are no vaccine or specific antiviral treatments for West Nile virus infection are available, so people are encouraged to use normal mosquito repellent techniques to avoid bites.
Chikungunya (pronunciation: \chik-en-gun-ye) virus is transmitted to people by mosquitoes. The most common symptoms of chikungunya virus infection are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash.
As if mosquitoes aren’t enough to worry about, ticks pose a serious threat to your family’s health too. Over 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme Disease every year, a few cases being fatal. Bacterium transmitted via tick bite can quickly spread to the joints, heart, and nervous system if left untreated. Symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and rash. Lyme disease usually lasts for a few weeks, and can be treated with antibiotics.
Reducing exposure to ticks is the best defense against Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and other tickborne infections. You and your family can take several steps to prevent and control Lyme disease by calling NEO Mosquito Control. As part of our service, we point out possible breeding grounds and show you how to control mosquitoes.
Dengue Fever, a well-known mosquito-borne disease, is the leading cause of illness and death in the tropics. Over 400 million people are infected yearly with Dengue, a virus that causes high fever, headaches, nausea, and severe body aches. Travel advisories to Central America, South America, Hawaii, and the Caribbean have been removed after a spike in cases earlier this year. However, basic mosquito prevention techniques are still encouraged.
The best way to reduce mosquitoes is to eliminate the places where the mosquito lays her eggs, like artificial containers that hold water in and around the home. Outdoors, clean water containers like pet and animal watering containers, flower planter dishes or cover water storage barrels. Look for standing water indoors such as in vases with fresh flowers and clean at least once a week.
