Are they spraying for the problem? What is the plan of attack for it if any?


The Centers for Disease Control say at least 16 human cases of West Nile have been reported in Missouri this yearhttp://www.kolr10.com/news/default.asp?mode=shownews&id=6255 (broken link)

I live in California (God willing planning to move out soon) we have had 175 cases with 19 deaths. Missouri has had 19 cases? Only 3 deaths. I would not worry to much about it at this point. It is usually elderly, sick, or something else that goes with the WNV. The average healthy person can get WNV and not even know they have it--might think you have the flu. Last year California sprayed from low level planes a chrysanthemum based pesticide, vote is still out as to weather it worked

There were two cases from what I understand in the Ozarks, but... I don't think anyone worries about it. The mosquito problem wasn't (at least this summer) bad and chances are you'll never encounter WNV. I think it's like tornadoes....too rare to worry about.
