The warning comes from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station which has found West Nile Virus mosquitoes infected in town.

To date, a total of 23 dead birds and two mosquito samples have tested positive for WNV this season in Saginaw County, officials said.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) made the announcement Thursday, saying all but one of the people diagnosed with the virus have been hospitalized.

But West Nile virus activity fluctuates from year to year and is influenced by local circumstances, including climate and mosquito populations. About one-in-five infected persons will have mild illness with fever, and about one in 150 infected people will become severely ill. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers when in mosquito infested areas.

Based on the number of positive mosquito samples so far, "overall WNV activity in California is less than past year", officials said on August 14.

Residents need to take basic precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites, including draining water from garbage cans, gutters or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

When outdoors use EPA-registered insect repellents such as those that contain DEET, IR3535, or Picaridin.

Wear loose-fitting clothes with long sleeves and trousers.

Keep mosquitoes out of your home. If you've got a plastic swimming pool, empty it when it's not in use.
