The mosquitoes that tested positive were collected during the week of June 25.

Although the state hasn't reported any mosquitoes with the virus yet in the county yet, "we know they're going to be around", Molchan said.

West Nile virus has been detected in Orleans Parish.

According to the province, mosquitoes infected with West Nile virus were found on July 11 in traps in the Estevan area - a few weeks earlier than previous year.

"Last year in Illinoise there were over 150 cases of West Nile and that includes five deaths".

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

Statewide, the state health department has reported two human cases of the West Nile virus so far this year; Hamilton and Lake counties each had one case. "A serious West Nile virus infection generally requires hospitalization".

West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of the house mosquito, which picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird.

But some human cases can be more severe.

Up to 20 percent of the people who become infected have symptoms such as fever, headache, and body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. Anything that can hold water can be a mosquito breeding area.

Remove standing water from bird baths, old tires, unused containers, flower pot saucers, swimming pool covers, wading pools, clogged gutters and eavestroughs and unused children's toys.

Defend yourself by using insect repellent that contains DEET, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus when outdoors.

The Health Department reminds people that the most effective way of avoiding the disease is to prevent mosquito bites at home and while traveling.
