The CAES said it anticipated further buildup in the coming weeks.

In rare cases, West Nile virus can cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the membranes around the brain and spinal cord).

A northeast Colorado resident has been hospitalized with the most serious form of the West Nile Virus.

"With high levels of [West Nile virus] in mosquitoes and the recent rains leading to even more mosquitoes, it's important for residents of Fairfax County to take precautions to protect themselves and their families", Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, director of Epidemiology and Population Health, said in a statement. These bodies of standing water are where mosquitoes lay their eggs.

The health department, with the help of Kozhikode corporation authorities, has already launched preventive measures including fogging and spraying to eliminate mosquitoes responsible for transmitting the virus into human beings. Humans, horses and other mammals can be infected. One hundred thirty four human cases of WNV, including three fatalities, have been diagnosed in CT residents since 2000. Mosquitoes can't begin their life without water. Change water in bird baths every three to four days.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools.

DUSK and DAWN are when mosquitoes are most active.

Sleep under a mosquito bed net if air conditioned or screened rooms are not available or if you are sleeping outdoors. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.

At the same time, spraying has been effective. Do not apply under clothing, to wounds or irritated skin, the hands of children, or to infants less than two months old. The rain and flooding often leave standing pools of water, creating flawless mosquito breeding grounds. Andre specializes in environmental health, but writes on a variety of issues.

The CAES maintains a network of 91 mosquito-trapping stations in 72 municipalities throughout the state.

The Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project, which the city joined earlier this year, will spray for mosquitoes Tuesday, Aug. 7.
