July 2016 - Overall West Nile Virus Threat
With increasingly warm average daily temperatures, above average mosquito populations, above average West Nile virus positive mosquito samples and dead birds, and a human infection in a neighboring county, the current risk of WNV transmission has been assessed as elevated.
The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District makes the following recommendations to help reduce the threat of mosquitoes and West Nile virus in Orange County:
- Eliminate any standing water around your home or office
- Make sure all window and door screens on your house are in good repair
- Wear a repellent containing DEET®, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus, or IR 3535
- Contact the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District to report dead birds or neglected pools
