Mosquitoes trapped in Gem County have tested positive for West Nile virus.  The mosquitoes carrying the virus in Gem County were trapped outside of the Gem County Mosquito Abatement District near the Payette County border.  The area where the mosquitoes were collected is not located in a mosquito abatement district.  Citizens are encouraged to protect themselves from mosquitoes by remembering the following:

DRESS appropriately with long sleeves and pants for protection from biting mosquitoes.

DEFEND yourself with the use of a CDC-approved insect repellant.

DRAIN any standing water that may produce mosquitoes.

Regardless of where mosquitoes infected with West Nile virus are found, everyone should take precautions to protect themselves from mosquitoes.  It only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to become infected yourself.

FIGHT THE BITE!!!
