West Nile confirmed in Bay County

The moquito species known to carry the incurable West Nile virus has been spotted in Saskatchewan

Bower said he did not know of any humans infected with the virus this year in the five-county area, including Snyder County, where the Northumberland County Conservation District is West Nile Virus county coordinator.

The mosquitoes were collected off North Spring Court, near Campbell and Jupiter roads, according to Garland health officials.

Certain mosquito species carry the West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain.

As of June 27, mosquitoes in Elkhart County and Carroll County have tested positive for West Nile virus.

This marks the second year GRDHD has trapped and tested mosquitoes for the virus.

• Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellent.

In a statement, they said, "It is important for residents to keep in mind to take precautions against WNV and other mosquito borne illness". The milder form of the illness, West Nile fever, can include fever, headache, body aches, swollen lymph glands, or a rash. We have more information posted at WKOK.com, including how you can prevent yourself and others from contracting the virus. Always follow the product label instructions.

LeBron James Rumors: Superstar Lands in Los Angeles Amid Free-Agency Chatter
LeBron may be in line to leave the Cavs via free agency for the second time, as he previously signed with the Miami Heat in 2010. Currently, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers are rumored to be at the forefront of his decision-making.

Dress appropriately by wearing long sleeve shirts and long trousers when outdoors.

Do not apply repellent near the eyes or mouth and use it sparingly around ears. The spray is not harmful to humans or pets and kills adult mosquitoes.

"If it can hold water, it can breed mosquitoes", officials state in the release.

To report standing water, call the Clark County Mosquito Control District at 360.397.8430.

Residents living in the area can expect an ultra low volume of insecticide spraying from trucks running after sunset when mosquitoes are most active. Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out mosquitoes.

Saskatchewan's last major West Nile outbreak occurred in 2007 when just over 70 serious cases were reported.
