Alternative EarthCare Discusses Why East End Horse Owners Should Obtain Organic Mosquito Control this Fall

LONG ISLAND, N.Y., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Alternative EarthCare, a Long Island mosquito spraying company has been providing quality residential and commercial services across Long Island, New York since 1996. Specializing in mosquito, flea, and east end tick control service, 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.

Mosquito control has always been important in the fall as many mosquitoes are still quite active well into the season. However, as Long Island autumns stay warmer and last longer than they have in the past, organic fall mosquito control becomes more and more important, especially with the rise of the dangerous Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Alternative EarthCare discusses why east end horse owners should obtain organic mosquito control this fall.

Organic mosquito control is an animal-friendly way to safeguard people and pets on your property from dangerous mosquito bites. Mosquitoes spread a number of dangerous illnesses such as heartworm, the West Nile virus, the Zika Virus, and several strains of encephalitis, including Eastern Equine Encephalitis.  Eastern Equine Encephalitis, or EEE, can infect both people and horses. The disease tends to occur in outbreak form when it comes to horses, and can severely damage the central nervous system. While EEE can be devastating for humans, it impacts horses even more with a fatality rate of over 90 percent of those infected.

Clinical signs of EEE include fevers, obvious signs of fatigue including a sleepiness of appearance and demeanor, muscle twitching within head, neck, shoulder, and flank muscles, the inability to walk without staggering, and within days of infection, eventually the inability to stand at all. In the few cases of horses that do survive this illness, they are often left with permanent brain damage.

While there is no way to eliminate every mosquito on the property, organic sprays ensure full-coverage protection to minimize mosquito populations as much as possible. Professionals will treat shrubs, lawns, trees, property borders, pool and pond areas, and all possible habitats, every three to four weeks throughout the active seasons to keep properties as mosquito-free as possible and to safeguard people and their beloved equine friends.

Serving both Suffolk and Nassau County, including the East End and the Hamptons, Alternative EarthCare 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.
