Mosquito Patio Trap Giveaway

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey did not receive compensation to help promote this post and is not responsible for prize delivery.

We didn't have a hot summer here in Michigan. In fact, it was rather cool, but we still got the mosquitoes. Then it got too cold for them, and they were gone (one of the very few perks of cold weather). Now the weather's up and down and they're starting to creep back up, in October!  Crazy, I know.

We could use a handy device like the Mosquito Patio Trap being given away. Then we wouldn't have to worry about when the mosquitoes come and go; it'd already be taken care of for us.  Bill over at Holiday Contest and Sweeps asked me to co-host this one, so a big thanks to him for the offer! He's got a ton of other great contests going on if you want to head on over and enter. And now on to this great giveaway!

What is the history of West Nile virus?

West Nile encephalitis is an infection of the brain that is caused by a virus known as the West Nile virus. First identified in Uganda in 1937, the virus is commonly found in Africa, West Asia, and the Middle East. "Encephalitis" means inflammation of the brain. One of the causes of encephalitis is viral and bacterial infections, including viral infections transmitted by mosquitoes.

West Nile virus had not been previously reported in the U.S. prior to an outbreak in New York in September 1999. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since 1999 more than 30,000 people have been reported with West Nile virus. More than 1,200 have died.

As of August 2012, an outbreak of 1,118 cases of West Nile virus were confirmed by the CDC. This is the highest number of reported West Nile virus cases since the virus was first detected in the U.S. in 1999. Of those, 56% of patients developed neuroinvasive disease (involvement of the brain and nervous system), the most severe form of West Nile virus infection. The CDC reports neuroinvasive disease was reported by 47 states. Approximately 75% of the cases have been reported from five states (Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Oklahoma), and almost half of all cases have been reported from Texas, many in the Dallas area.
