West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne disease that causes inflammation or swelling of the brain and spinal cord. Since its discovery in New York in 1999, the virus has spread rapidly across the country, infecting horses, birds or humans in nearly every state in the continental United States. One in three clinically-infected horses will die.
Aero Tech’s aerial pesticide application provides protection from the West Nile virus by eradicating its source: the mosquito. In applications, we follow the most stringent guidelines for environmental protection when working around watersheds and estuaries.
Aero Tech is a long-time service provider for federal and state agencies, helping to solve pest problems. Since 1988, Aero Tech has served the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Harris County Control Board with mosquito control for the Houston Shipping Channel in Houston, Texas. Since 1998, Plainview, Texas, has also contracted for Aero Tech’s mosquito control services.
