  • The virus is spread by mosquito bites

West Nile virus is transmitted from birds through bites by the Culex pipiens mosquito. Treated areas in August have included Arroyo, Mace Ranch and Pioneer parks as well as the Isla Greenbelt.

About 20 percent of infected people will have symptoms such as fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, swollen lymph glands, skin rash on chest, stomach and back.

There is also a small risk of infected people developing the more serious West Nile virus neuroinvasive disease, which could cause inflammation of the brain and can also be fatal.

Mosquito-borne diseases are typically more prevalent in late summer and early fall. Repellents keep the mosquitoes from biting you. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30% or less on older children. With WNV and EEE established throughout the state, DEM and RIDOH remind the public to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and prevent being bitten, whenever possible. Dispose of water-holding containers, such as ceramic pots, used tires, and tire swings. This includes using bug spray, making sure door and window screens are tight-fitting and limiting the amount of standing water near your home, the release said.

Use mosquito netting when sleeping outdoors.
