West Nile Virus Activity Detected in Mosquitoes in Northern Indiana

WATCH Two-week life cycle of a mosquito explained

A sampling of mosquitoes in Owensboro was tested positive for West Nile Virus.

On June 26, officials from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health reported the state's first WNV-positive mosquito of the season. Although 8 out of 10 individuals who become infected with WNV experience no symptoms, 1 in 5 will experience febrile illness symptoms, including headache, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, and rash, with fatigue potentially lasting for weeks.

Bower said he did not know of any humans infected with the virus this year in the five-county area, including Snyder County, where the Northumberland County Conservation District is West Nile Virus county coordinator. No human cases have been confirmed this year. People who think they may have West Nile virus should see their health care provider. Treat standing water that can not be eliminated with a mosquito larvicide.

Preventative measures involve removing the potential habitats of infected mosquitoes, including by ridding yards of standing water where the bigs typically breed, and ensuring window and door screens don't have holes in, Jared Dever, district manager of the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District, said in a statement earlier this month.

Minimize time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellant.

Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, and socks when outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk to reduce the amount of exposed skin, as weather permits.

According to the Department of Health, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of contracting West Nile encephalitis.

Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home.
