Alert

 

The Fresno Mosquito and Vector Control District is notifying residents in your area of an increased level of West Nile virus (WNV) activity. West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne disease than is spread from the bite of an infected mosquito. Symptoms of WNV include fever, headache, body ache, nausea, and skin rash. Less than one percent of infected individuals will develop more severe symptoms such as: high fever, muscle weakness, neck stiffness, coma, and/or paralysis. In rare cases WNV can be fatal.

 

In order to avoid being bitten by an infected mosquito and to help eliminate mosquito breeding sources residents should take the following steps:

 

• Stay inside during the early morning and evening hours.

 

• If required to be outside use mosquito repellent and long sleeved shirt and pants.

  Always follow instructions on the repellent label.

 

• Make sure window screens and doors fit properly and don’t have any gaps that

   would allow mosquitoes to enter the home.

 

• Remove all standing water sources from your home. Common sources include bird

   baths, flower pots, buckets, bowls for pets, unmaintained pools and spas.
