The first human case of the West Nile virus has been found in Jefferson County. Statewide tests for the virus began on June 12. Adult mosquitoes are trapped and tested to provide an estimate of the number of infected mosquitoes.

West Nile virus-positive mosquitoes have been found in Larimer County this season. Not all counties and municipalities test mosquitoes so its important for all Coloradans to take preventative steps.

According to the Center for Disease Control the most effective way to avoid West Nile virus disease is to prevent mosquito bites. Be aware of the West Nile virus activity in your area and take action to protect yourself and your family.

Use insect repellents when you go outdoors. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection. To optimize safety and effectiveness, repellents should be used according to the label instructions.
