Santa Cruz County residents should take steps to reduce mosquito populations and avoid being bitten after a bird was discovered with the West Nile Virus, the California Department of Public Health said Friday.

DCHHS is awaiting confirmation of the case from the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Health officials recommend draining standing water weekly, limit outdoor activities and take precautions outside during dusk and dawn, use an insect repellent with the effective ingredient deet, and dress in long sleeves and trousers where mosquitoes are active.

Safety Tre Flowers selected to Jim Thorpe watch list

There are no special precautions or waiting period recommendations for swimming pools regarding ground spraying, the news release said. Mosquitoes that carry the West Nile virus are most active at dusk and dawn.

Very few people actually get ill from this infection, around eighty percent of people who become infected by west Nile, don't even know they've been affected due to the minimal to obsolete symptoms. DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.

Wear protective clothing, including long trousers, long-sleeved shirts and socks, in areas where mosquitoes are active.

Mosquito development can also be hindered if homeowners clean eavestroughs, empty birdbaths, barrels and other water-collecting items, and prevent any standing water around their residences.
