What are the Symptoms of EEE?
If a person has been bitten by an infected mosquito, they can anticipate developing symptoms of EEE in approximately four to 10 days.
The symptoms of EEE include the sudden onset of fever, chills, headaches, and vomiting. Symptoms can then progress to disorientation, seizures, and then a coma.
At this time, there is no treatment for EEE. Options like anti-viral drugs and antibiotics have proven to be ineffective against the virus. But there is an EEE vaccine for horses.
Supportive therapy including hospitalization, respiratory support, and IV fluids can be used to help make the person a little more comfortable.
How to Prevent Mosquito Bites & EEE Transmission
As we enjoy our time outside, it can feel nearly impossible to prevent mosquito bites.
But there are ways to discourage groups of mosquitoes (known as scourges) from lingering on your property.
Homeowners and business owners are encouraged to take precautions in an effort to eliminate a mosquito infestation on their property.
Standing water is a favorite spot for the pest as it is an ideal place to lay their eggs. Standing water areas can include wetlands, pools, plastic toys, tarps, even plant saucers, or water bowls.
Eliminating the standing water, removing debris and/or clutter from the property can help encourage mosquitoes to look elsewhere.
To further reduce the possibility of an infestation, Catseye Pest Control offers a one-of-a-kind organic program that helps eliminate mosquitoes and ticks.
Our Organic Tick and Mosquito Program includes an in-depth inspection of the property, establishing a customized treatment plan, and monthly visits to create an organic protective barrier around the property.
The products used by our technicians are environmentally friendly, safe for your family, guests, and pets while providing a protective barrier around the property.
