Iowa's first 2017 West Nile case found in Ida County

Iowa's first 2017 West Nile case found in Ida County”

Staff collect adult mosquitoes from 10 traps located throughout the county.

Staff said they've planned to visit those areas on Tuesday "to pass out mosquito protection and prevention educational materials and monitor standing water looking for mosquito larvae". "I believe it was sometime in the 1990s when we had our first West Nile discovery in the state, and it's been here every summer since then".

The first confirmed case of West Nile Virus this year has been reported in Ida County in northwest Iowa.

Last year, IL reported 155 cases and six deaths from West Nile virus.

The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes.

The first confirmed human case of West Nile virus in IL in 2017 is a Will County man in his 60s. Most people recover quickly, but about one percent of those infected with the virus develop severe neurological illnesses such as encephalitis or meningitis that can result in death. No human cases have yet been confirmed in Frisco.

West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a Culex pipiens, or house mosquito.

-Apply insect repellent on exposed skin and clothing when you go outdoors.

Eliminate standing water around your home, where mosquitoes breed.

Removing potential breeding areas can reduce the amount of mosquitos in the area. Empty water from buckets, cans, pool covers and pet water dishes.

The CDC recommends using repellents containing EPA-registered active ingredients including DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon-eucalyptus.
