As of Wednesday, mosquitoes in Elkhart County and Carroll County had tested positive for West Nile virus.

The mosquitoes were collected off North Spring Court, near Campbell and Jupiter roads, according to Garland health officials.

The risk of getting West Nile virus in southern Saskatchewan remains low for now.

The State of Connecticut Mosquito Management Program (MMP) announced that mosquitoes trapped in New Canaan on June 19 tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV).

Curry explained that the bugs pick the virus up from birds and then transmit it to other mammals.

To avoid mosquito bites, the CDC suggests that people can also wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers and use bug repellent containing DEET or Picaridin.

• Get rid of mosquito breeding sites by removing standing water around your home, such as turning over any type of container that can collect water and cleaning clogged roof gutters.

July through October are typically the highest-risk months for exposure to West Nile virus in Oklahoma.

"The first West Nile virus positive mosquitoes of the season have been identified", said Dr. Philip Armstrong, Medical Entomologist at the CAES.

Do not apply repellent near the eyes or mouth and use it sparingly around ears.

Four out of five people infected with West Nile Virus will not show any symptoms, which include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches, according to the CDC.

"If it can hold water, it can breed mosquitoes", officials state in the release.

Treat standing water that can not be eliminated, such as retention ponds or drainage ditches, with a mosquito larvicide.

The Clark County Mosquito Control District will continue surveillance and abatement activities throughout the active mosquito season, which usually runs through the end of September.

They also say to make sure you cover your doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house.

Saskatchewan's last major West Nile outbreak occurred in 2007 when just over 70 serious cases were reported.
