Health officers suggest that folks protect themselves from West Nile by applying bug repellent, clearing their yards of standing water that draws insects and wearing long sleeves and trousers at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

While most people don't show signs of illness, others experience fever, head and body aches or other flu-like symptoms.

According to the California Department of Public Health, West Nile has infected more than 6,500 people and caused 292 deaths statewide since 2003.

"When outdoors, dress to cover your skin and try to avoid times when mosquitos are most active, such as during dusk through dawn". These are effective defenses against mosquitoes when used as labeled.

Empty and wash birdbaths and wading pools weekly.

With the number of mosquitoes on the rise across the state, county health department are continuing to track and test them. These cases are neither reported nor recognized as WNV.

Nationally through August 6, 128 total human WNV cases have been reported, including four deaths. Symptoms of a more serious case include "high fever, severe headache with neck stiffness, disorientation, tremors, vision loss, muscle weakness, numbness and paralysis", Skiles said.

Public Health collaborates with local vector control agencies to target areas for mosquito control activities as well as educate people about how to protect themselves.

The best way to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites is by following "the three Ds: drain, dress and DEET", Skiles said. Keep in mind to tip and toss anything that can hold water on your property and use insect repellent when mosquitoes are present.

West Nile virus is transmitted to humans via the bite of infected mosquitoes, which become infected when feeding on birds carrying the virus. "Reducing the risk of mosquito-borne disease infection is a shared responsibility for everyone who lives, works, and recreates in LA County".
