Mosquito-borne disease activity increasing in Sarasota County

The state Health Department reported Thursday that West Nile virus has been detected in humans or mosquitoes in 11 counties across South Dakota.

Use insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, or PMD.

Symptoms of WNV include headache, fever, neck discomfort, muscle and joint aches, swollen lymph nodes and a rash that usually develop 2 to 14 days after being infected.

"Today's announcement reminds all Pennsylvanians to be vigilant and take precautions to protect against mosquito bites".

The health department routinely tracks mosquito-borne illnesses, including Zika.

Wear light-colored, lightweight clothing with long sleeves and long trousers when outdoors at dawn or dusk.

Although mosquitoes can bite at any time of the day or night, the mosquitoes that transmit WNV are most active at dawn and dusk.
