And WNV already has been detected in IL. "A lot of crews will go out and find Gatorade caps or just beer bottles or anything with very little stranding water and they can produce hundreds of mosquitoes and can produce their eggs", says lab technician Sydney Camfield. ABC 13 reports that mosquitoes in Lucas County, Ohio, also tested positive.

It's worth noting that the following week, the district did not detect any WNV in its traps.

Officials with the Mississippi State Department of Health say the West Nile Virus can be contracted any time of year.

Last year, 62 people tested positive for West Nile in North Dakota.

Stevenson urges homeowners to remove standing water on their property so mosquitoes don't have a place to breed.

Mosquitos that carry WNV got it from feeding on an infected bird - so if you see a sick or dying crow, blue jay, robin or other perching bird, it could be a sign that WNV is in the area.

In addition, there were 51 human cases of West Nile virus reported in 2017, the highest number in Wisconsin since 2012. In rare cases, severe illness including meningitis or encephalitis, or even death, can occur. Others who are at risk are those over the age of 60 as they pose a greater risk of severe illness following a bite.

Residents of MI may be stunned to hear that the first case of West Nile this year was reported in their home state.
