Reduce The Threat of West Nile Virus-Deaths at New High and Climbing

Posted: 1/11/2013

To reduce the threat of West Nile virus, it's important to eliminate areas of standing water where mosquitoes can breed.
To reduce the threat of West Nile virus, it's important to eliminate areas of standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

(NAPSI)—Late summer and early fall are when West Nile−infected mosquitoes are most active, and they will surely add to the more than 2,000 cases and increasing number of deaths already reported. There is one simple step you can take to greatly reduce your risk of contracting this often-fatal disease: Eliminate all standing water on your property.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, this is essential. Empty any pots, barrels and containers at least weekly. Since the CDC advises that gutters are usually the leading source of standing water, you may want to consider replacing your gutters with Rainhandler, a system for handling roof runoff that eliminates standing water.

It’s a set of seven aluminum louvers that take the roof runoff and convert it to gentle rain-sized drops, which are spread in a swath three feet wide away from your home. It requires no cleaning or maintenance and there is no ground erosion.

Rainhandler has a one-year, money-back guarantee and a 25-year warranty. To learn more, visit www.rainhandler.com or call 800-942-3004.
