According to a report published yesterday from CBS News Baltimore, For the first time this year, a person in the Baltimore area has West Nile virus. Now health officials have issued a warning about mosquito-borne illnesses. In addition health officials also report that pools in Anne Arundel County and Prince George County have tested positive for West Nile Virus too. Now the health department has released a warning to all Maryland residents to take precautions against the virus by using insect repellent and clearing standing water where mosquitoes breed.

Now is the time to remain vigilant with mosquito prevention and control practices. Maryland is home to over 40 different species of mosquitoes, and although they’re tiny, they can cause big problems. Maryland mosquitoes are potential vectors of West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, La Crosse Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis and canine heartworms.
