Protective Measures Against Mosquitoes
You can reduce your risks of contracting West Nile by protecting yourself from mosquitoes. • Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR 3535 according to label instructions. Repellents help keep mosquitoes from biting. • Wear clothing that reduces the risk of skin exposure. Wear long-sleeves and long pants if you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time. • Exposure to mosquitoes is most common at night and during the early morning. Some species bite during the day, especially in wooded or other shaded areas. Avoid exposure during these times and in these areas. • Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out mosquitoes.
West Nile virus detected in Richland County bird
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), Richland County, and City of Columbia officials announced today that a bird in Richland County has tested positive for West Nile virus. "Identifying birds carrying West Nile virus in our state is not uncommon," said Chris Evans, Ph.D. and DHEC's staff entomologist. "Birds pass the virus on to mosquitos, which can then infect humans. Positive identifications serve as an important reminder to preventing mosquito bites. It's the most important step you can take to prevent the spread of illness from mosquitoes to people."
