Mosquito Viruses in the Birmingham Area – Let Mosquito Squad of Birmingham Keep You Safe

If you’ve been reading our blog you know that Chikungunya is not related to chickens at all but a rapidly spreading mosquito-borne virus that is new to the United States. The virus was brought back to the States by vacationers to the Caribbean and other exotic destinations where it has been spreading rapidly.

Mosquitoes transmit diseases through a single bite.

Last week the 5th case of Chikungunya was confirmed in Alabama and specifically right here in Jefferson County. At the time, Birmingham residents were still safe from local transmission because there was no evidence of mosquitoes in the states carrying the virus. But just this week two cases of local transmission were confirmed in Florida, where Chikungunya was first found. Neither of these people had traveled to an area where they could have been bitten which means the experts concerns have now been realized and local transmission has begun. They knew the possibility existed because it is the day feeding Asian Tiger mosquito, which was brought to the U.S. in a shipment of tires in 1985, that can spread the disease by biting and infected person and transmitting it to others.


Since we know the virus in around our area, now it’s more important than ever to protect yourself and your family from the possible transmission of the disease. One bite is all it takes so let Mosquito Squad of Birmingham eliminate mosquitoes in your yard with our barrier spray treatment. Our mosquito barrier spray is applied every 21 days for continuous protection on the foliage in your yard. When mosquitoes land to feed on the plant juices or to rest, they are eliminated on contact. It also provides an effective barrier around your property to keep additional mosquitoes from entering. It is the most effective mosquito control for your yard.
