Did you know there are over 3500 species of mosquito worldwide? And that 69 ( yes 69 😎) reside in the province of Ontario, Canada. Of those #69, 15 are capable of transmitting West Nile virus. #themoreyouknow🌈 #knowledge #knowledgeispower #entomology #westnilevirus #mosquito #whoknew #thisismypartytricksinceIhadbacksurgeryandcantdobackflipsanymore #bugguy #mosquitoman #randomfacts #whoyagonnacall

Turning a Blind Eye takes on a new meeting as West Nile Virus (WNV) hits my Aviaries like never before. Apollo is blind in one eye and seems to only have some light awareness in the other eye and he is lucky. At least two of my other birds died from WNV. One was a Harris's Hawk, the other was one of my female Goshawks, a third which was not necropsied was also a likely death by WNV. Another Goshawk tested "low" positive and has survived thus far. I will be vaccinating all vulnerable birds ahead of next spring and putting screening on many of my mews. I have been in consultation with several raptor veterinarians to determine how we might better study WNV. I will post a series of photos to demonstrate the brave new world we face with emerging diseases. #westnilevirus #lifeofthefalconer #raptorpropagation #falconry

From the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District: The current West Nile Virus (WNV) risk rating for Orange County is still considered "Elevated Risk". Although mosquito infection rates have subsided, mosquito abundance is still above average in some areas, which is conducive to WNV transmission. More: www.ocvector.com/wnvthreat.html

Sharp Increase in West Nile Virus Deaths in 2017

Southern California has experienced a sharp increase in cases of West Nile Virus over the last few years. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has identified 235 cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) this year alone and 16 WNV-related deaths, up from 153 identified cases and 6 fatalities in 2016. The City of La Verne has seen 2 reported cases of West Nile Virus this year.

Fortunately, most people infected with the disease suffer only mild illness, including fever, headache, and fatigue. However, in rare cases, those infected with the virus can develop serious and sometimes fatal conditions that affect the central nervous system. Serious symptoms include high fever, stupor, disorientation, convulsions, vision loss, and paralysis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that West Nile is spread to humans through mosquito bites.
You can reduce your risk of WNV by using insect repellant and wearing protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites. Use screens on doors and windows throughout your home. Throw out items outside your home that hold standing water such as tires, buckets, toys, and trash containers.
For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health at publichealth.lacounty.gov or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention at cdc.org. #laverne #laverneca #lavernecalifornia #thelaverner #westnile #westnilevirus #westnileprevention #mosquitos

It’s #NotJustABite. Mosquitoes spread serious diseases, like #WestNileVirus and #Zika. Apply repellent when you’re outdoors.
Visit the County's website for more information: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Mosquito-Borne-Disease.htm

Always wondered why my mosquito bites would either get infected with nasty bubbles or swollen up badly... babes shared her knowledge with me. And yeap, I have Skeeter Syndrome. In other words, I am allergic to mosquito saliva. Damn my life. I already have a bag of illnesses I gotta add another to the bunch. lol Yesterday I had muscle pains, stiff neck, horrid headache, so I need to take care of myself, just watch if these things persist because I may have the West Nile virus. Last year I carried the Zika virus, so knowing my luck. 😤😥 lol
Take care of yourselves and get tested. Provide yourself with mosquito care product, cuz these fuckers ain't playing games. lol

#FBF Back in grad school, I did a series of glitter viruses called "Glitter is the Herpes of the Art World." Each monolayer glitter painting was made on a 4"x4" canvas using one speck of glitter at a time! 💎 Here's "West Nile Virus" inspired by my days as a lab rat slaying away in an arbovirus lab. ⚗🐁 See more glitter viruses on my website! © Christybomb® 2017 | www.christybomb.com 💣
