LONG ISLAND, N.Y., Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Alternative EarthCare has been providing quality residential and commercial services across New York since 1996. Specializing in tick, flea, and Long Island mosquito control, traditional lawn services (including aeration and seeding), irrigation system services, tree removal and pruning, and Christmas and holiday light installation, the team of professionals successfully caters to your needs in the least toxic, most organic way possible.

Mosquitoes transmit several different strains of encephalitis and one of them, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, has been posing a problem for Nassau residents for some time now.  Many people infected by EEE show no signs of infection or show mild symptoms, but not all are so lucky. Encephalitis can be very dangerous with severe and life-threatening symptoms, including swelling of the brain which can lead to a multitude of neurological issues. Alternative EarthCare shares important information about mosquito-transmitted encephalitis with Nassau residents.

Eastern Equine Encephalitis can be transferred to birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals, including the family pets. Unfortunately, the dangerous illness can also be transmitted to humans leading to very dire consequences in some cases. Encephalitis symptoms range from muscle pain, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting, and headaches, to high fevers, disorientation, seizures, and coma. Those suffering from compromised immune systems can experience more severe symptoms. EEE in humans is rare, but it does occur, and nearly a third of human cases result in loss of life. If the disease does not impact the central nervous system, recovery occurs in about one to two weeks. However, those who suffered from severe cases can be left with permanent disabling and progressive mental and physical issues such as slight brain dysfunction and seizures and even as serious as severe intellectual impairment, paralysis, cranial nerve issues, and personality disorders.

For Nassau residents, though this illness is rare, it is vital to take precautions to minimize risk. Avoid periods of high mosquito activity, such as during dusk or right after a big rain. Remove any standing water on the property to minimize breeding grounds and wear repellents when outdoors. Most importantly, obtain professional treatments to minimize mosquito populations on your property. Treatments should take place every three to four weeks for best results, and emergency treatments can also be obtained within a 48-hour window to address population booms or to prepare for an outdoor event. Many professionals even offer both synthetic and organic treatment plans to meet the needs of each homeowner.

Serving both Suffolk and Nassau County, including the East End and the Hamptons, Alternative EarthCare Long Island Mosquito Spraying offers a variety of organic, non-toxic lawn care services for your home or business. In addition to beautifying and maintaining properties, the award-winning staff is also dedicated to the safety and health of their customers.
