A mosquito pool in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood has tested positive for West Nile virus, health officials announced Friday.

The department on Thursday told the city that collections from Worcester and Auburn carried West Nile Virus. An effective repellent will contain DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.

"Dress: Wear long sleeves, pants, and closed toe shoes when outdoors to cover your skin".

The DOH said the best way to prevent West Nile is to protect yourself from mosquito bites: wear long sleeves and trousers when outdoors; avoid time outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitos are most active; use an EPA-registered insect repellant; protect children and babies with mosquito netting when they are outdoors; mosquito-proof your home; get rid of standing water in things like gutters and empty flower pots, which can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and making frequent changes to birdbath water.

"The best thing for people to do is really to eliminate any places around their home where mosquitoes could be breeding", he said.

The Lake County Health Department's Mosquito Surveillance Program coordinates mosquito trapping results throughout Lake County.

Montgomery County has seen a spike in West Nile virus activity this season. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of the end of June, 23 states have reported cases of West Nile virus in mosquitoes, people, and birds in 2018.

Mosquito pools that tested positive for WNV were collected from the Fairmont Park, Lafayette Shores, Norfolk Industrial Park and Edgewater areas. However, some may become ill usually three to 15 days after the bite of an infected mosquito.

Maytubby notes that West Nile Virus can be debilitating and deadly. People over the age of 50 are at the greatest risk of serious illness, such as encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord).

Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Neil Schader says PA residents can take steps to prevent the spread of West Nile Virus.
