Precautions

In reply to: Summer time - mosquitos - West Nile

We already have the W.Nile here in Ohio. Worse my neighbor gotten it some time back. Then on top of all that, I work alot outside here in my mini-swamp area. So, I take it seriously but work must be done so precautions are taken. The recent rain doesn't help either. take care -----Willy Happy

Our Health Department

In reply to: Summer time - mosquitos - West Nile

..... puts little boxes on trees that monitor the mosquito types and populations. We are asked to report finding certain dead birds to the department, which will come and pick them up for examination.

So far this year this county has had no human deaths reported. Last year we were in a drought ( fewer breeding spots) , but this year this has not been the case.

Health Department has done a fine job of educating the public, like keeping an eye out for breeding spots such as saucers under outdoor plants, standing water in gutters. and keeping bird baths fresh.

I have avoided being outside during " mosquito feeding times".
