Mosquitoes Carrying The West Nile Virus Could Be Deadly (WATCH OUT)

For standing water that can not be drained, use microbial larvicides commonly called "dunks" that kill mosquito larvae before they emerge as adults.

"Our mosquito surveillance team is monitoring virus activities in the area again this summer", said Oswego County Public Health Director Jiancheng Huang. The mosquito pool is the first confirmed indicator of West Nile presence in Lake County in 2018.

District officials warned residents to watch out during the early morning and evening hours, when mosquitoes are most active.

Use insect repellants with DEET according to the manufacturer's directions.

"Dress: Wear long sleeves, pants, and closed toe shoes when outdoors to cover your skin".

Be Aware of Peak Mosquito Hours - The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes.

Other precautions people can take to minimize mosquito exposure are to fix or replace all window and door screens to keep mosquitoes outside, and reduce or eliminate all standing water.

Mosquito pools that tested positive for WNV were collected from the Fairmont Park, Lafayette Shores, Norfolk Industrial Park and Edgewater areas.

Most people bitten by a mosquito with West Nile Virus do not get sick. "Just one bite from an infected mosquito could change your future".

Maytubby notes that West Nile Virus can be debilitating and deadly. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, headache and muscle ache. "West Nile Virus is a unsafe disease, particularly for young children and older adults".

A little over three weeks after a consortium of public health officials gathered in the Texas Rio Grande Valley to discuss strategies for controlling mosquito-borne diseases, like Zika virus and West Nile Virus, rain-soaked South Texas is now experiencing a full-fledge explosion of mosquito populations, spawning quick action by city and county governments to step up vector control efforts to slow and hopefully control the invasion.
