  • First West Nile Positive

     

    June 13, 2018

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

    One batch of mosquitoes, collected on June 11, 2018, from a NSMAD trap in Niles, tested positive for West Nile virus in our lab on June 13.

    This year, WNV positive batches of mosquitoes have also been found in NSMAD traps located in Glenview and Morton Grove.

    While the risk of being infected with West Nile virus is low at this time of year, 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.
