MOSQUITO CARRYING WEST NILE VIRUS CONFIRMED IN FARMERSVILLE

Collin County has confirmed a mosquito tested in Farmersville was a carrier of the West Nile Virus.

When outdoors, the Collin County Health Department recommends using insect repellent containing an EPA-registered active ingredient. The gold standard for mosquito repellent is DEET, which may be used on adults and children greater than two months of age. Other repellents recommended by the CDC for use against mosquitoes that may transmit WNV include picaridin, IR3535 and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-methanediol products. Oil of lemon eucalyptus products should not be used on children less than three years of age. Be sure to apply insect repellent only in accordance with the instructions on the product label.
