The cases involve residents of Oconto and Fond du Lac Counties, and follows the news of officials having found 20 West Nile-positive mosquito pools and 63 birds with the virus that had been reported on August 16.

The late summer is the most important time to take precautions. Additionally, they should remove or treat areas where water settles for several days and keep gutters and yards free of debris where mosquitoes may collect. Like humans, birds are usually infected by West Nile virus from bites by infected mosquitos.

A team led by Fiona Hunter, a medical and veterinary entomologist, analyzed 12 years of data, examining human case prevalence, mosquito surveillance and climate statistics from across the province with the goal of predicting outbreaks.

Approximately 80 percent of people who are infected with WNV will not show any symptoms at all, but there is no way to know in advance if you will develop an illness or not. In more serious cases - about one in 150 people - an infected person will have a high fever, stiff neck, serious headaches, confusion, tremors, numbness and a sudden sensitivity to light. For additional information on the West Nile virus, visit sccmo.org/1038/West-Nile-Virus.

Many mosquitoes are most active from dusk to dawn.


To optimize safety and effectiveness, repellents should be used according to the label instructions.

DRESS - Wear clothing that reduces the risk of skin exposure to mosquito bites (i.e., long trousers and long-sleeved shirts). Don't apply repellents containing permethrin directly to skin.

Mosquito traps, electrocutors (bug zappers), ultrasonic repellers, and similar devices purported to prevent mosquitoes from biting people are not effective.

Other tips include making sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens, repairing or replacing screens that are torn, and keeping doors and windows shut, especially at night.

Health officials say you can reduce mosquitoes around your home by eliminating any standing water.
