To assist in reducing the mosquito breeding, stagnant water is to be removed. Some of the major contributors to stagnant water are gutters backed up from debris and swimming pools that are circulating poorly or not at all.
The virus is transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. Symptoms from infection generally appear within 2-14 days after the bite of the mosquito.
Most people who are infected by the virus experience no symptoms or mild, flu-like symptoms. Those at higher risk of developing potentially serious conditions are the elderly and those with lowered immune systems.
Anyone who feels they may have symptoms due to WNV infection should contact their personal physician or local health department immediately for further advice.
If you see either of these situations please contact Delta Vector at this link.
