Mosquitoes found in county test positive for West Nile

Mosquitoes found in county test positive for West Nile

The Department of Environmental Management said Friday that 115 mosquito samples from 30 traps set statewide July 31 tested negative.

The Kent County Health Department has discovered the first evidence of West Nile Virus in the county from a pool of mosquitoes that tested positive for the virus.

In June, the county placed Gravid traps, which are used to attract mosquitoes, in the zip code areas of 49503, 49504 and 49519, in addition to where the virus was detected.

Dolphins believe rookie LB Raekwon McMillan has torn ACL
McMillan, a second-round pick from Ohio State, had been all the Dolphins hoped for as he prepared to enter the league. This was not how Raekwon McMillan's first National Football League game was supposed to go.

Four other traps in the testing surveillance project are created to attract Aedes Egypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes - two species known to carry Zika virus. "We expect West Nile to be present to some degree until the first frost". So far, neither species has been identified during testing, which will continue until Labor Day.

West Nile is an illness that can be deadly for people with weakened immune systems, and the elderly, according to the health department.

"We want people to be aware that they can greatly reduce their own risks by taking some simple precautions", he said in the release.
