"Mosquito-borne diseases overall are increasing", CDC spokeswoman Kate Fowley told weather.com.
A Canyon County man in his 50s has tested positive for West Nile virus, health officials announced on Thursday.
Mosquitoes are usually most prevalent from late April until mid-October. Rarely, transmission to humans has occurred via exposure in a laboratory setting, through a blood transfusion or organ donation or from mother to baby during pregnancy, delivery or breastfeeding. Eight out of 10 people will never experience any symptoms.
Boulder County Public Health recently confirmed that mosquitoes in Erie, Louisville and Longmont, Colorado, have tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV), providing a reminder for the campus community to take precautions when outdoors this time of year.
Last year, Toronto Public Health did not record the first lab-confirmed case of West Nile virus until August 25.
Between 2013 and 2015, there were no reported human cases with only single cases reported in 2016 and 2017. Of those, 23 cases involved meningitis or encephalitis.
Homeowners are also asked to eliminate standing water by cleaning eaves troughs, emptying bird baths, covering rain barrels with mosquito screens, getting rid of containers that collect water and landscaping for better drainage. Residents are reminded to wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts and trousers and use mosquito repellent containing DEET if older than six months of age. These bodies of standing water are where mosquitoes lay their eggs. The use of mosquito nets can be useful at night, particularly for infants.
