Mosquitoes Test Positive For West Nile In Wethersfield

West Nile Virus found in mosquitoes in Perth County traps

A Dallas resident is the first person to die from West Nile virus this year in Dallas County, health officials announced Tuesday. Standing water can be treated with EPA-approved larvicides to kill mosquitoes before they become adults.

Mosquitos are collected from over 90 test sites across CT to test for viruses including West Nile, Zika and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

Limit outdoor activities during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

Complaints regarding properties with stagnant water in tires, unmaintained swimming pools or other water-holding containers can be reported to the Health Department's Housing and Community Environment program by calling 412-350-4046.

Those that do, usually experience mild flu-like symptoms like fever, headache, skin rash or muscle aches.

There's more evidence of the presence of West Nile virus in Sarnia-Lambton. Most people with these symptoms will recover completely on their own. With a second positive result for the virus residents should make sure they use the following strategies to avoid the virus.
