  • LASALLE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT “Additional Birds Tests Positive for West Nile virus”     by Press release submission	 |  Sep 13 2018

Monitoring for West Nile virus in IL includes laboratory tests for mosquito batches, dead crows, blue jays, robins and other perching birds, as well as testing humans with West Nile virus-like symptoms.

A pool of mosquitoes found near Rochelle and another separate mosquito pool collected in Monroe Center tested positive for West Nile virus on July 16.

"If you have an extremely bad mosquito problem or think that you do, please call the health department so we can do some surveillance in that area, some tests in that area, and it may be an area that we may have to treat with larvicide or go out and spray", Dindy said.

West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a house mosquito, which has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. There is no cure for WNV. However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches. These symptoms can last for several days to months.

"Our agency will continue monitoring virus activity and controlling mosquitoes in affected areas", said Anais Medina Diaz, public information officer for GLACVCD.

Many mosquito repellents are available to prevent bites, but they do not all work equally well.

Wearing loose-fitting long sleeves and trousers can also help deter bites.

Any water left standing for more than one week in containers such as flower pots, fountains and pet dishes provides the ideal breeding habitat for mosquitoes.

Eliminate standing water in clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, discarded tires, buckets, watering troughs or anything that holds water for more than a week.

Change the water in pet dishes, birdbaths and other small containers weekly. They can also contact the Sacramento-Yolo mosquito control district and request their staff to install mosquito-eating fish in their ponds, free of charges. "The best way to protect yourself against illness is to wear insect repellent and to get rid of any stagnant water around your home to reduce the number of mosquitoes".

- reporting neglected (green) swimming pools to the vector control district.

With three separate mosquito pools from three different locations throughout the county being confirmed as positive, it is imperative to be alert and take protective measures against West Nile virus.
