West Nile Virus

Mosquitoes collected in the valley have tested positive for the West Nile Virus. So far that makes a total of 91 positive samples.. That number makes this the biggest saturated year since 2012 according to one scientist.

West Nile is a very dangerous virus that is transmitted through mosquitoes. In some cases, the dangers of West Nile are such that they could be fetal. Typically, only children would become that sick, however the virus will hospitalize any adult that is exposed. Scientists are requesting that people be extra diligent in the prevention of mosquito bites as a way to prevent getting West Nile. Some scientists will allow these infected mosquitos to live so that they can study the full life cycle in an effort to reduce the total amount of mosquitos. Some suggest insect repellant and gloves, other say the only effective way to rid your yard of mosquitos is by calling a pest control company that you trust, to come to your home and inspect for mosquito nests. Once they locate the nest they can better determine a plan of action on how to keep these pests away.
