Increasing Awareness for West Nile Virus Prevention
Spread the Word Not the Bite!
WEEP & Recover stands for West Nile * Education * Eradication * Prevention and Recover. We are a non-profit organization formed to generate discussion and provide education on how to prevent mosquito borne disease.
I have a very personal story for creating WEEP. Read
Please share your stories as we join forces to Educate, Eradicate and Prevent mosquito borne diseases.
WEEP & Recover is a registered 501-c3 organization. Help us spread the word by donating your money, time or expertise.
What Can I do?
We're glad you asked. This is an issue that affects EVERYONE and the entire animal population. We are all exposed to host animals or mosquitoes in our everyday lives. We need to spend the time and effort required to educate ourselves and our children to prevent bites and breeding opportunities for mosquitoes.
Understand the Times of Day when Mosquitoes are most active
Inspect your surroundings – No standing water
* All mosquito species go through four distinct stages during their life cycle: Egg - hatches when exposed to water. Larva - (plural: larvae) "wriggler" lives in water; molts several times; most species surface to breathe air. Pupa - (plural: pupae) "tumbler" does not feed; stage just before emerging as adult.
We must be vigilant with our local, state and federal leaders to make prevention a priority for all of us. Please Join Us and subscribe for upcoming events and information. Inform us what your local and state governments are doing to mitigate the mosquito problem. We appreciate your input, support, and contributions!
