Aerial Spraying For Mosquitoes Continues Across Texas

Mosquitoes and West Nile

Much of Texas, including the city of San Antonio, is under a summer-long mosquito attack. These attacks have many San Antonio residents fearful of the deadly West Nile Virus which is at its highest levels ever. Over 75 percent of the country’s West Nile cases stem from the state of Texas which has led to President Obama to assess the situation and declare a state of emergency. Texas health officials say that more than 50 percent of the confirmed cases are “neuroinvasive,” the most severe form of the disease resulting in a confirmed 30 statewide deaths.

Combating the Mosquitoes

One effective way to combat the disease carrying mosquitoes is with aerial pesticide spraying, but it does raise many questions and concerns among the general public. Airplanes have been spraying many portions of the state with a pesticide designed to eliminate the mosquitoes and control West Nile outbreaks. The pesticide being aerially dropped is called DUET. It’s safe for the general public, but some my suffer reactions. The most common reactions to DUET include: burning sensations, prickling sensations, tearing in the eyes, blurred vision, and respiratory irritation.

If You Have Any of The Following You May Be Vulnerable To Reactions:

  • Pregnancy
  • Allergies
  • Lung disease
  • Asthma
  • Respiratory infection
  • Hypersensitivity to chemicals


If you are concerned about having possible reactions to the aerial counterattacks, Texas health officials urge residents to take precautions. During the spraying, bring your pets indoors. Make sure to stay inside for a couple hours until the pesticide settles. Afterward, wash patio furniture, vehicles, children’s toys, and any garden vegetables. Make sure to wash your shoes as well before returning inside the house. If you feel like you may be hypersensitive to these pesticides, you may want to consider leaving town for a day or two.

Pest Control

We’re still a long way away from the end of West Nile season. We’ll be dealing with the virus outbreak through at least the end of September. If you are worried about the DUET pesticide, the West Nile Virus, or mosquitoes on your property, contact a local pest control professional today. They can offer safe, non-toxic solutions for all of your concerns and needs.

Pest Control San Antonio – Great Service!

Every wonder who is the best pest control service in San Antonio?

Well I am a little biased so I will defer this one to Sandra -

Great Service! – sandradlrs – Aug 8, 2009

For years I had a great company providing me with excellent service and unfortunately my two good friends are no longer with us. I was reluctant to go with a big company for fear that they would not care for my family like they did. But Bulwark changed my mind. Brian answered all of my questions explained all that he was going to do and put me at ease about the treatment. What I really appreciated was Brian’s effort to avoid making any noise while my 2 year old napped.That’s when I knew that we had made the right decision to go with Bulwark. Thanks again Brian

Thanks for putting it so well Sandra.  Bulwark is one San Antonio pest control company that is big enough to do it right but still small enough to care.  Bulwark is privately owned and family run, but even more it runs like a family.  From the owner to the technicians, as you have witnessed. And we know that its hard to determine who is the best pest control service in San Antonio, but we submit that Bulwark is among the best in San Antonio. We are sorry to hear of your recent loss. Thanks for choosing us as your replacement. Thanks for the great review! We will always do our best to be your new excellent exterminators.
