West Nile detected in more mosquitoes - Lake County Record-Bee

Mosquito

It is confirmed by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) and Department of Environmental Management (DEM) that there is a presence of the West Nile Virus in Rhode Island.

Two deaths have been reported in Forrest and Humphreys counties.

Officials also say that 35 West Nile Virus-positive mosquito batches have been detected in Macon County.

The findings are especially troubling for the south of the province, including Toronto, Hamilton, Halton Region, Peel Region, Windsor-Essex County, and York Region, where the majority of West Nile cases have occurred in the past.

There have been three documented cases of Monterey County residents contracting the virus, none fatal, according to data from the state. Last week in Hamilton, 15 batches of mosquitoes from 10 traps tested positive.

As for the weather, June saw more than double its normal rainfall and July almost double, according to iweathernet.com. July got 4.12 inches. There is an abundance of standing water to the west of Logan.

A press release from the agency says that a WNV positive sample of Culex tarsalis was collected in the Gerber area, about five miles southeast of Great Falls, on Wednesday, August 16.

"We want to stop the mosquitos before they get wings", she said.

So far in 2017 the mosquito-transmitted virus has turned up twice in Lambton County - first in a mosquito pool tested in Petrolia, and then in a dead crow found in Sarnia. "I haven't noticed any differences yet".

About one per cent of people infected with West Nile become seriously ill and experience flu-like symptoms.

Wear loose, light-colored, long clothing to cover the arms and legs when outdoors.

Drain or treat all standing water around your home.

MCDH suggests limiting time outside from dusk to dawn - peak times for mosquitoes.
