The culex mosquito, health officials say, is the species responsible for transmitting the West Nile virus from birds to humans.

DEP has detected West Nile-infected mosquitoes in 36 counties so far this year.

Steve Ford, administrator of the health department, said the mosquito tested positive at the Indiana State Health Department lab.

Municipal Mosquito has worked with the city since 2010 to set up traps and spray the area when positive results called for it.

The notice to residents is not a reason for alarm, the agency said, but it's important to be aware of risks for mosquito-borne disease. Eliminate standing water whenever possible: every 5 days, bird baths and baby pools should be emptied to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs.

"We have ramped up our mosquito testing this summer, using two staff members to trap mosquitoes throughout the County for identification", says Greg Kesterman, Assistant Health Commissioner. Treat large water areas and hard puddles with larvicide pellets to prevent mosquito larvae from maturing.

Install or fix screens. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. A mosquito from North Branford was also positive for the illness.

Less than 1 percent of people infected with the virus get seriously ill with symptoms that include high fever, muscle weakness, stiff neck, disorientation, mental confusion, tremors, confusion, paralysis, and coma.

Young children, adults older than 50, and people with compromised immune systems are said to be most vulnerable to contracting the West Nile Virus. People with symptoms should consult their doctor.
