West Nile Virus confirmed in North Iowa

Mosquitoes taken from a trap in the southeastern part of Mitchell have tested positive for West Nile virus, the Perth District Health Unit reports.

A Northwest Dallas resident is the first person to die from West Nile Virus in Dallas County in 2018, Dallas County Health and Human Services said Tuesday.

Not everyone who is bitten by an infected mosquito will show symptoms of the virus.

The product used will be a mosquito pesticide called Zenivex E20, which kills adult mosquitoes, but is not harmful to people and pets.

The chances of getting West Nile Virus from an infected mosquito are low. In North America, that means that mosquito season - extending from the late spring through the fall - is West Nile season.

Use effective insect repellent such as DEET or Picaridin.

Wear long, loose and light-colored clothing.

They are most active at dawn and dusk and will bite humans as well as other mammals and birds.

According to an announcement from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office, the rates of mosquitoes carrying West Nile have been much higher this year. At least once a week, eliminate the sources of standing water around a home by draining garbage cans, buckets, toys, flowerpots, etc.
