Notice & Reminder! Increased Levels of West Nile Virus within the Adult Mosquito Population ~ Avoid Exposure ~

Several areas within the District are currently experiencing increased levels of West Nile Virus (WNV) within the adult mosquito population to the level where transmission to humans is likely. The species of mosquito involved in WNV transmission is a passive mosquito, and not an aggressive biter with its presence often undetected. Recent warm temperatures have created ideal conditions for the production of this mosquito species along with rapid amplification of WNV.

Residents are encouraged to use a common sense approach in avoiding exposure to adult mosquitoes and any potential mosquito-borne diseases.

Friendly Reminders:

  • Window screens should be inspected and repaired if damaged to prevent mosquitoes from entering the home.
  • Eliminate anything that can hold enough water to breed mosquitoes.
  • Residents should look for potential mosquito breeding sources around the home and take the following simple steps:
    1. Throw away all trash that can hold water as cans, jars, bottles, etc.
    2. Clean rain gutters/downspouts to prevent water from standing in gutters or on flat roofs.
    3. Change water in bird baths, wading pools, etc. at least once a week.
    4. Maintain swimming pools properly.
    5. Remove or turn over containers, buckets, wheel barrows, etc. which may accumulate water.
    6. Screen rain barrels to prevent adult mosquitoes from depositing eggs on the water’s surface.
    7. Aerate ornamental ponds and stock with goldfish or other surface-feeding fish to control mosquito production.
    8. Dispose of any used tires without rims to prevent water accumulation.
