Eastern Equine Encephalitis
There has been a recent rise in EEE, or Eastern Equine Encephalitis, cases in Michigan. The virus, also known as Triple E, is like West Nile and Zika virus in that it is spread by mosquitos to humans when the mosquito bites the human. This virus can lead to a brain infection that can potentially be fatal. Due to this recent rise in the dangerous mosquito-borne virus, we are offering Mosquito Spraying services to help prevent the likelihood of mosquito bites and virus transmission from these bites.
Up to half of all people who are infected by the EEE virus develop encephalitis, where their brain swells. The symptoms tend to come on very suddenly after a 4-10 day incubation period. These symptoms include headache, fever, chills, muscle pains, seizures, vomiting, and flu like symptoms. The death rate for EEE is about 30% and even those who survive major EEE infections often tend to have life-long consequences such as brain damage. To help reduce the chances of EEE virus transmission, call us today to schedule an appointment for mosquito spraying and reduce the population of mosquitos in your area!
