West Nile mosquitoes found in Louisville

Mosquito tests positive for West Nile in Erie County Mosquito spraying scheduled for Monday in parts of Adams County

A 53-year-old female and a 64-year-old male are the first confirmed human West Nile Virus (WNV) infections in Stanislaus County this year, announced Dr. Julie Vaishampayan, Public Health Officer for Stanislaus County.

Less than a week before classes are scheduled to resume, the Austintown School District is telling parents that mosquitoes found on school property have tested positive for West Nile Virus. Like humans, birds are usually infected by West Nile virus from bites by infected mosquitos.

Zilka said some residents have criticized mosquito spraying, however he said it is necessary to combat West Nile.

An unusually rainy summer could play a role in West Nile levels continuing to rise heading into the school year. Humans that are bitten by a mosquito with the virus may show signs three to 15 days after being bitten.

Certain bird species, especially crows and ravens, are particularly vulnerable to West Nile virus, and the discovery of dead birds serves as an early warning sign the virus is near.

As of the week ending August 19, there were 14 confirmed or probable human cases in the province.

According to a Logan City press release, the Bear River Health Department recommends Cache Valley residents apply DEET mosquito repellent and wear long sleeves and trousers from dusk till dawn. Two cases also have been reported in Arkansas, but Arkansas State Health Department did not say where those cases were reported.

Use insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, or PMD. The Environmental Protection Agency has a search tool to help you choose the repellent that is right for you at https://www.epa.gov/insect-repellents/find-insect-repellent-right-you#search tool. "Since there is no specific treatment for the virus, the best approach is to avoid exposure to mosquito bites".

DRESS APPROPRIATELY-Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, and socks.

Make sure that doors and windows have tight-fitting screens.
