The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District has found the first mosquitoes to test positive for West Nile virus in the District this year.

Five batches of mosquitoes, collected between May 20 and May 22, 2019, tested positive for West Nile virus in our lab on May 23. The mosquitoes were collected from NSMAD traps in Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Northbrook and Winnetka. Please visit our website to see the most current test results.

While the risk of being infected with West Nile virus is low at this time of year, the NSMAD recommends that residents take personal protection measures to minimize mosquito bites including: using insect repellent, wearing loose fitting clothing and avoiding peak mosquito feeding times during the hours around dawn and dusk. Residents are urged to examine their property and eliminate any items that can hold water, particularly smaller items that may be easily overlooked.

Remember, if it can hold water, it can breed mosquitoes.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
