Following the first reports of West Nile Virus infection in California, Sacramento based window replacement company Halls Window Center has issued a five page white paper detailing six methods of protection against the mosquito-borne virus.

Sacramento based Halls Window Center (http://www.hallswindowcenter.com) has issued a white paper that details six methods of protecting your home and family against West Nile Virus. With summer approaching and the mosquito population increasing, the month of June is the optimal month to begin preparations to avoid the life-altering and sometimes fatal virus.

"There are simple steps that families can take to avoid being a victim of this virus. Protection is just a matter of being aware of these steps and taking the necessary precautions," says Halls Window Center president Bob Grandinetti.

The first human cases of West Nile Virus have surfaced early this season with 4 reported infections in Mississippi. According to the CDC, avian, animal, or mosquito infections have been reported in California, Texas, Illinois, Indiana, and Florida.

Among the CDC's top 4 recommendations for reducing risk of becoming infected by West Nile Virus is the installation or repair of window screens along with using mosquito repellant, eliminating mosquito breeding grounds, and supporting community-based mosquito programs.

"As a provider of replacement windows and screens to the Sacramento area, we felt that it was our responsibility to publish an informative document to help aid in the protection of the community," says Grandinetti.

To further support community safety, Halls Window Center has announced that it will continue to apply the introductory discount to sales of its new TruScene screens. The screens, crafted with micro-fine stainless steel mesh, work by creating a barrier against mosquitoes and small insects. The screens are designed to fit the Renewal by Andersen window line of products and can be used by new window replacement customers as well as current homeowners with Renewal by Andersen brand windows.

Though the first case of West Nile Virus was first documented in the late 1930's, the virus was not an issue of concern for most Americans until 2002 and 2003 when a significant number of human illness cases surfaced in the United States. According to the CDC, the most serious manifestation of WNV in humans is infection is fatal encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain.

The five page white paper covers a variety of topics including the symptoms of those infected by West Nile Virus and an explanation of six simple ways that individuals can protect themselves from the virus in their homes and while outdoors.
