In this issue of our “Home Inspector Tip of the Week” series, Kevin shows you how to better protect your family from mosquitos & the deadly West Nile virus that has become such an issue this summer around the South.
From a recent article in The Advocate:
City-parish officials are warning residents of East Baton Rouge Parish and surrounding areas of an increased threat of West Nile virus this summer.
Matt Yates, director of East Baton Rouge Parish Mosquito Abatement and Rodent Control, said the infection rate for Southern House Mosquitoes in the parish is 11.1 infected mosquitoes per 1,000 mosquitoes tested.
Historically, he said, an infection rate of at least 6 mosquitoes per 1,000 during July has resulted in human cases of West Nile virus in the parish.
“Having 11 (per 1,000) is almost twice that, so it indicates there’s a lot of virus in the mosquitoes right now,” Yates said. “We need to take precautions to avoid bites.”
