It's been a quiet summer so far for West Nile Virus.


No human cases of the virus have turned up in Saskatchewan, but at least one positive pool of the Culex Tarsalis Mosquito that carries it has been found in the province.

Protect themselves from mosquitos by using bug repellent with DEET, and eliminating mosquito breeding areas on their property.

Historically, the last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August are the most active times for West Nile in Saskatchewan, and everyone protect themselves from mosquitoes.

2007 was a record year for the West Nile Virus in Saskatchewan, with more than 14 hundred 50 human cases and six deaths.
