Which mosquitoes spread which disease?

"We want to encourage residents to reduce their risk of WNV and other mosquito-borne diseases by taking the appropriate precautions", said Sands Cleary, Director of Health for the Town of Fairfield. This species is also known to bite during the daytime just as much as they can at both dawn and dusk.

DEET: Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535 according to label instructions.

"Make sure to fix or install window and door screens to keep mosquitoes from entering your home". Residents are encouraged to remove any items that can hold water, which can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Turn over wheelbarrows, wading pools, boats, and canoes when not in use.

Change water in bird baths on a weekly basis.

Drain Standing Water - Many mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water.

The majority of people, approximately 80 percent, who are infected with West Nile virus do not get sick.

The mosquitoes can then spread the virus to animals and humans.

The Waukesha County Environmental Health Division, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Division of Public Health, will continue WNV surveillance until the end of the mosquito season.
