Mosquitoes in Hamilton test positive for West Nile virus

Mosquitoes in Hamilton test positive for West Nile virus

A third mosquito trap has tested positive for West Nile Virus in Ada County this year, according to the Ada County Weed, Pest and Mosquito Abatement Department.

West Nile is most common in central and western Minnesota, according to the CDC, and late summer is when most cases occur.

EEE is one of several viruses that can be transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes including West Nile Virus, chikungunya, and Zika.

Last year, 61 counties in IL reported a West Nile virus positive mosquito batch, bird and/or human case.

"Hot weather and standing water create the ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed", Executive Director Mark Pfister said.

Though most people have no symptoms of West Nile virus, about 20 percent of individuals develop a mild infection known as West Nile fever.

Health officials advise people living and visiting Greece should take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes throughout the country as they cannot predict where the next case might occur.

Pastorick says the prison will continue to take preventative measures against West Nile including cutting down on areas of standing water. Since then there have been four human cases - all in the Okanagan.

The department's Juan Rodriguez said they want people to realize that anyone can become infected.

The resident lives in Little Elm and was diagnosed with West Nile Fever.

Reduce mosquito exposure by limiting outdoor activities between dusk and dawn.

Effective repellents are those containing the active ingredients DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR 3535, as recommended by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
