Mosquitoes postive for West Nile Virus have been found in mosquito pools in both Hamden and North Haven.
In addition to infected mosquitoes, the Connecticut State Department of Health reported the first human case of West Nile Virus in a resident in New Haven.
Given the opportunity, mosquitoes will bite people. They will continue to thrive until the first sustained frost (3 or more days).
We have quite a long time to go until that happens. So be wise and protect yourself from mosquito bites. Eliminate standing pools of water (water without circulation) that are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. This includes puddles!
Use an insect repellent when outdoors, especially at times when mosquitoes are more active. Wash the repellent off when returning indoors.
