Mosquitoes collected in Prince George's Co. carry West Nile

Cass County saw its first human diagnosed with West Nile Virus within the past week, making three total across the state.

West Nile Fever: A milder viral infection in which people experience flu-like symptoms.

Several areas in Ouachita Parish recently tested positive for West Nile virus in Ouachita Parish.

The patient is in Southeast Tarrant County.

Two women from Aurora and Wheaton have confirmed cases of the West Nile Virus.

According to the officials, the illnesses may occur within 4 to 10 days after being bitten and if anyone occur the symptoms such as fever and headache then they should contact their doctor for treatment.

REPEL: When outdoors, wear shoes and socks, long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535, according to label instructions.

West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird or other animal. For additional information on the West Nile virus, visit sccmo.org/WestNileVirus.

Mosquitoes can live indoors and outdoors, and some types bite during the day while others bite at dusk and dawn.

Soucy said, "It's a good opportunity to remind people to eliminate standing water on their properties to help minimize the amount of time that mosquitoes can breed".

The Berkshire Mosquito Control Project will continue its efforts to reduce the mosquito population in the area with the use of larvicide, according to Superintendent Chris Horton.

Health officials say that most people infected by the virus will show no symptoms.

Set up outdoor fans to keep mosquitoes from flying near you.

West Nile virus activity generally decreases in the fall when cooler temperatures arrive and especially after the first frost of the season, the release stated.
