Mosquito Time/ThermaCell  
Mosquito Time Tips From a Thermacell UserWEST Nile Virus (WNV) is one of several mosquito-borne viruses in the United States that can infect people. The virus exists in nature primarily through a transmission cycle involving certain species of mosquitoes and birds. 
Mosquitoes become infected with WNV when they feed on WNV infected birds.
West Nile virus has emerged in the 1990s in temperate regions of Europe and North America and was introduced into New York City in 1999. The virus has moved westward from New York to California and in 2003 was documented in 46 states.
Most people (about 80 percent) that are infected with WNV by the bite of an infected mosquito will have no symptoms and will not know they have been infected. Approximately 20 percent of the people that are infected may experience a range of flu-like symptoms which may include fever, headache, weakness, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and pains, rash and in some cases diarrhea and sore throat.

Less than 1 percent of people that are infected with WNV by the bite of an infected mosquito will develop severe illness. Persons over 50 years of age are at highest risk
 of developing the most severe form of the disease and persons over the age of 70 with other health problems are at greatest risk for death.

As with any disease, the public should respond appropriately with increased awareness of WNV and focus on personal preventive measures. 
How To Protect Yourself From West Nile Virus 
Individuals can significantly reduce their chances of acquiring West Nile virus by taking very basic precautions which include personal protective measures such as wearing insect repellents when in mosquito habitats and wearing long pants and sleeves that will provide a physical barrier against mosquito bites. 
Since immature mosquitoes require stagnant water for development, 
  • Inspect your yard and neighborhood for any stagnant water that may collect in a variety of containers from bottle caps to abandoned swimming pools. 
  • Eliminate unwanted containers (tires, trash) or turn containers over as to not collect water (wheelbarrows, kiddie pools) and properly maintain wanted water sources such as bird baths, ornamental ponds.  
Night Fishing Mosquito Thermacell UserBeing an angler, I use ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent whether I am on the bank or in the boat.
I must have some sweet blood because if
 there is a mosquito in the area they find me.

Night fishing
 is not far off and there will be all kinds of fishermen out, and do not forget those mosquitos are out at daylight and dusk. 
The Midsouth has received its share of rain and the Mississippi is out of its bank creating water puddles everywhere that will breed mosquitos. 
This is something not to laugh about. Back yard BBQs which I do a lot in the Spring, Summer, Fall are prime feeding grounds for the mosquito. I have two ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent Outdoor LED Lantern on my patio and a large 3 acre bug zapper for the back yard. 
Don't forget the pets; they can not tell you that they have been bitten or feeling sick. 
I have been with ThermaCell for the past three years and I swear by their product, every angler that goes with me when I fish at night always ask where are the Mosquitos?

ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent Outdoor LED LanternThat they have not been bitten once, and it is great when you can sit out
 in the back yard and not have to worry about Mosquitos. 
My property backs up to the woods, which make a prime place to get attacked by them little blood suckers. 
You can get ThermaCell from the link and image links here on my web site. Or you can go to ThermaCell and tell them sent you. I promise you that this is one product you will thank me for telling you about it.
