Hanson says the most common mosquito transmitting the virus is most active just before sundown and throughout the night into early morning hours.
And WNV already has been detected in IL.
North Shore Mosquito Abatement District's Christopher Xamplas collects mosquito specimens from traps throughout the area and tests them for West Nile virus. "Hot dry conditions are ideal for West Nile activity". This is the first WNV-positive bird reported in the county this year.
Two mosquito samples tested positive last week for West Nile Virus in Montgomery County. You should contact your local health department, which will determine if the bird will be picked up for testing.
Harris County Public Health recommends covering up outside, wearing mosquito repellent and getting rid of all standing water in your front and back yard. "If you're feeling that way in the summertime. go see your doctor".
Symptoms of West Nile virus include a high fever, confusion, muscle weakness and a severe headache. People who work or spend a lot outdoors are at risk for catching the illness.
More serious complications could include neurological issues, such as meningitis and encephalitis. Others who are at risk are those over the age of 60 as they pose a greater risk of severe illness following a bite.
Use EPA-registered insect repellents with one of the following ingredients: DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol and 20undecanone.
The best way to protect yourself is to avoid mosquitoes, which means staying indoors at dusk and dawn, wear light-colored clothing and leave as little skin exposed as possible.
