West Nile virus found in three Vermont towns

West Nile virus now in 4 Colorado counties, Dept. of Public Health says

"What we're looking for are the culex mosquitoes and they are the only mosquitoes that we have here which can carry the West Nile Virus".

A Clark County horse was euthanized after becoming infected with West Nile Virus, according to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Ten cases of Zika virus disease were reported in New Mexico in 2016.

One final note: Experts say bug zappers, sonic devices, and mosquito traps may have some entertainment value but have not been proven to reduce the risk of West Nile Virus infection.

People bitten by an infected mosquito may develop West Nile fever and experience flu-like symptoms which may include fever, body aches, skin rash, and fatigue. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms.

The department recommends using insect repellents containing up to 30 percent DEET and wearing long sleeves and trousers when outdoors.

The State Mosquito Management Program continues to trap and test mosquitoes at three testing sites in Greenwich as part of their program.

Holt says the county knows they will find West Nile every year, and they best thing they can do is just prepare for it.

The Vanderburgh County Health Department will be performing Adult Mosquito Control (adulticiding) in an area where significant mosquito activity has been found.

"It takes everyone in the community to take responsibility to use insect repellents and to remove or treat standing water sources", Crawford said. The local health department or city government may be able to add larvicide to the water, which will kill any mosquito eggs. Small puddles of water in troughs, buckets or tires are breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitoes. Keep them outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors. Unlike birds, they are unable to develop high levels of virus in their blood stream and can not pass the virus on to other biting mosquitoes.
