West Nile mosquito spraying set Monday

By Charles Lefebvre

DE officials say they have found first two wild birds of the year that have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

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

The results for the second crow came back positive four days later. Targeted, truck-mounted aerosol spraying is also performed to help control the mosquito population in certain areas of Boston.

Wearing a long-sleeved shirt, long trousers and socks when outdoors - especially at dusk and dawn. To help prevent mosquitoes from breeding, BPHC advises residents to empty standing water from flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, pet water dishes, discarded tires, and birdbaths on a regular basis.

It's the time of year when both mosquitoes and tics thrive.

"Scheduled spraying is done after dusk when mosquitoes are most active, people are inside, and bees are dormant", city spokeswoman Roberta McCulloch-Dews said in a statement.

In 2017, MS reported 63 West Nile cases and two deaths. This is the third year in a row that a dead bird in Washburn County has been found to be infected with WNV.

"Use insect repellent, follow the directions". And also mosquito proof your home and your yard.

Make sure all windows and doors have screens, and that all screens are in good fix. A small number of people infected develop serious illness, with young children, pregnant women, senior citizens and individuals with immuno-compromised systems being particularly vulnerable.

Symptoms of infection may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, a rash, muscle weakness or swollen lymph nodes.

It's a bit earlier than usual for West Nile to show up in the First State.
