Combating West Nile Virus

National Pest Management Association

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) will host a webinar, ''West Nile: What Pest Management Professionals Need to Know'' on Wednesday, September 5th at 1:00 PM EST.

West Nile Virus (WNV) has been a huge topic of discussion in the news, as such the NPMA has partnered with Dr. Joe Conlon, Technical Director, American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) to present a webinar in combating the spread of mosquitoes and WNV.

2012 is shaping up to be one of the worst years for West Nile Virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thus far more than 1,100 illnesses have been reported, including more than 40 deaths. To give perspective, an average year has less than 300 reported cases by mid-August.

Pest management professionals from around the country are fielding questions from clients about West Nile Virus and the mosquitoes that transmit it.
