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.

"It takes everyone in the community to take responsibility to use insect repellents and to remove or treat standing water sources", Crawford said.

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.
