    West Nile Virus Positive Mosquitoes Found in Wilmette

    The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District has found the first West Nile virus positive mosquitoes to occur in our trap in Wilmette this year.

    One batch of mosquitoes, collected on July 16, 2018, from an NSMAD trap in Wilmette, tested positive for West Nile virus in our lab on July 18.

    With the WNV positive result from our Wilmette trap, every community that we serve has had WNV positive batches of mosquitoes, including: Deerfield (Cook County) Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Golf, Kenilworth, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Northbrook, Northfield, Skokie and Winnetka.

    The level of West Nile virus activity is moderate and increasing. Human infections typically occur during the months of July-September. The NSMAD recommends that residents take personal protection measures to minimize mosquito bites including: using insect repellent, wearing loose fitting clothing and avoiding peak mosquito feeding times during the hours around dawn and dusk. Residents are urged to examine their property and eliminate any items that can hold water, particularly smaller items that may be easily overlooked.

    Remember, if it can hold water, it can breed mosquitoes.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.
