Trap tests positive for West Nile virus

Trap tests positive for West Nile virus

With temperatures warming and mosquitos coming out of hiding, Alberta Health Services is once again reminding the public about the threat of West Nile Virus - something that just won't go away.

The first sign of West Nile virus has shown up in Windsor and Essex County.

DEET - Cover exposed skin with an insect repellent containing the DEET, which is the most effective repellent against mosquito bites. West Nile Virus is active throughout the State of California.

Drain - Empty any containers holding standing water - buckets, barrels, flower pots, tarps - because they are breeding grounds for virus-carrying mosquitoes.

West Nile Virus has been identified in Butte County every year since its arrival in 2004.

The West Nile virus originated in Uganda in 1937 when it was isolated in a woman in the West Nile area of the country, according to the World Health Organization.

The virus is usually prevalent from May through October when mosquitoes are most abundant.

In addition to birds and humans, horses are also affected by West Nile virus.

The CDC recommends anyone with symptoms consistent with West Nile to see a health care provider who can order a test for the infection.

The virus is carried by infected mosquitoes and can be transmitted to animals, birds and humans. Make sure door and window screens fit securely and are free of holes. For more information call the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District at 530-533-6038 or 530-342-7350.
