According to Dr. Amy Person with the Benton-Franklin Health District, "Reports of West Nile virus activity in mosquitoes are a reminder that each of us needs to take steps to prevent mosquito bites".

The Health Department said the traps were set on June 21 and 22 of 2018 and today they found out about the results from the Ohio Department of Health Laboratory.

Transmission of West Nile virus can be avoided by preventing mosquito bites, the only know route of transmission. Currently, no vaccine or specific treatment exists for a person at risk or ill with WNV.

West Nile virus is spread through the bite of an infected mosquito.

About 20 percent of people who become infected with West Nile will develop mild symptoms and about 1 in 150 people will develop serious symptoms, which may include fever, headache, body aches, swollen glands and skin rash, Frankovich said.

AMCA stresses mosquito-borne diseases do not only affect humans - they also kill countless birds, reptiles, animals and endangered species each year. The Connecticut Department of Public Health reported 2,022 cases of Lyme disease in 2017. Residents are encouraged to be a part of the solution by eliminating standing water that can breed mosquitoes on their properties.

Last year, 30 towns in 6 counties had mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile.

If possible, stay indoors during prime mosquito biting times: dusk and dawn.

Limiting outdoor activity at dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active, or wearing long sleeves and trousers, socks and shoes.

■ Apply bug repellent when outside, but be mindful of using certain chemical ingredients like DEET on small children. Windows and doors without screens should be kept shut, especially at night. Horse owners should keep horses in indoor stalls at night to reduce their risk of exposure to mosquitoes.
