Two mosquito traps in Ada County have tested positive for West Nile virus.

Those mosquitoes were collected recently from a trap in the town and tested positive, the first confirmed cases this year.

Staff with the county's Mosquito Abatement & Vector Control Division will work with county Health Services Agency staff and California Department of Public Health staff on this year's response.

Health officials report that less than 1 percent of infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, neurological illness.

There are no special precautions or waiting period recommendations for swimming pools regarding ground spraying, the news release said.

DEET All Day, Every Day: Whenever you're outside, use insect repellents that contain DEET or other EPA approved repellents and follow instructions.

Limit outdoor activities at Dusk and Dawn when mosquitoes are most active. Check labels for picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol.

The virus' symptoms can appear 13 to 14 days after an infection, and initial symptoms include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, weakness or rash, but most people don't exhibit any symptoms, according to the release.

Wear protective clothing, including long trousers, long-sleeved shirts and socks, in areas where mosquitoes are active. Empty water from tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged gutters, rain barrels, birdbaths, toys and puddles.

People are advised to wear bug spray or long sleeves and trousers, while also removing any standing water from their property.
