  • Positive Result

    July 14, 2014

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

    A pool of mosquitoes collected in Evanston on June 30, 2014, initially tested negative via RAMP® in our lab on July 3, 2014. The sample was sent to the Illinois Natural History Survey for additional testing via RT-PCR that indicated the sample tested positive for West Nile virus on July 10, 2014.Click here for current test results.

    The NSMAD recommends that residents take personal protection measures to minimize mosquito bites including: the use of insect repellent on exposed skin, wearing light colored, 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.

Our Mission

We work to reduce and control the regional mosquito population so as to decrease the probability of mosquito borne illness and minimize the negative impact mosquitoes have on the quality of life in the District.

Report

You can help us minimize your exposure to mosquito bites by reporting standing water and dead birds.
