Mosquito Control Is Key to Fighting West Nile Virus
The Village of Norridge is again taking steps to minimize the impact of West Nile in our community with the implementation of an integrated pest management program that includes trapping and surveillance of mosquito populations, larviciding to prevent the development of larval mosquitoes and adulticiding to reduce the adult mosquito population.
Larviciding treatments began early in the mosquito season, where small amounts of larvicide were added to standing water and other mosquito habitats to prevent new generations of mosquitoes from forming. Mosquitoes can lay between 200-300 eggs at a time, and can reproduce very quickly. By larviciding early in the season, we are able to prevent hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes by season’s end.
Adulticiding treatments will begin mid-summer, when mosquito populations are at nuisance levels or indicate the presence of West Nile Virus. Adulticiding applications involve a very small amount of US EPA-registered products distributed in a fine mist.
About West Nile Virus
Symptoms of West Nile Virus are initially similar to the flu, with muscle weakness and disorientation. Though the majority of those infected will have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, in some individuals, West Nile Virus can cause inflammation of the brain (encephalitis) and in severe cases, paralysis, coma or death. The disease is most serious – even fatal – in those with compromised immune systems and the elderly.
If at any time you suspect that you may have contracted West Nile Virus, seek medical attention.
What Can Residents Do?
