Mosquitoes in Marshall County test positive for West Nile

Mosquitoes in Marshall and Pike counties have tested positive for the West Nile virus, according to Indiana health officials.

There are no reported cases in humans yet this year. 

State health officials say this is the time of year when mosquitoes are active, but there are a few ways you can protect yourself.

  • If possible, avoid being outdoors during prime mosquito biting times, especially late afternoon and dusk to dawn and early morning;

  • Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus to clothes and exposed skin;

  • Install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home; and,

  • When possible, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants while outside.
