Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control announced Thursday that several mosquitos in Butte County are plagued with West Nile and the virus is now active in Butte County. Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing, so spraying clothes with repellent containing permethrin or another EPA-registered repellent will give extra protection.

Samples collected in those area over the past two weeks have indicated high mosquito populations, and some samples have tested positive for West Nile Virus, officials say.

Southwestern public health is reminding local citizens to protect themselves against West Nile virus, caused by mosquito bites.

If you experience symptoms of West Nile Virus, contact your medical provider. Most people who end up with West Nile get it from a mosquito bite. Mosquitoes contract the virus when they feed on infected birds, then spread the virus when the mosquitoes seek other hosts to bite.

Minor, non-neurological symptoms include fever, chills, nausea and fatigue while serious, neurological symptoms include tremors, drowsiness, unconsciousness, paralysis and even death.
