While it's now not an issue here in CT another Mosquito borne illness you need to look out for is Eastern equine encephalitis it's been detected in south eastern MA.

West Nile comes with a few, distinct symptoms that include fever, weakness, muscle pain, and headaches.

The California Department of Public Health notes that four human cases of West Nile virus have been reported statewide, one each in Fresno, Imperial, San Bernardino and Stanislaus counties.

West Nile virus detected in East Haven it's the first case this season.

The West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a Culex pipiens mosquito, commonly called a house mosquito, which has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. The two fatalities were over the age of 80. One in five persons infected with the virus will exhibit symptoms.

13 mosquitoes collected from a trap near I-12 in July tested positive for the disease, according to the parish's Mosquito Abatement and Rodent Control Interim Director Randy Vaeth. Luz Robles, the district's public information officer, said that mosquitoes complete their life cycles faster in warm temperatures, going from larvae to adult mosquitoes in as little as four to seven days. Eliminate, or refresh each week, all sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed, including water in bird baths, ponds, flowerpots, pet bowls, clogged rain gutters, wading pools, old tires and any other containers.

And along with mosquitoes, tacks are also of concern.

Keep doors, windows and screens in good condition and make sure they fit tightly.

"We are doing a lot of investigations in the community to identify mosquito pools; to see where the mosquitos are growing and then deciding the measures to decrease that population", Leguen said. The virus is transmitted through mosquito bites.
