Quotes

...like were going to get the really warm weather that would make for a bad West Nile season, if you look at the long-term forecast," McLean said. "I don't want to say that we're out of the woods, but the last two years have been pretty intense when it came to West Nile virus. This year, maybe not so much."
"Normally, July and August are the peak months for West Nile virus activity," he said. "We all know that it's been pretty rainy lately and we've actually had some cool days so that has generally resulted in less activity, as far as West Nile and mosquitoes this year."
"The number one thing I do is cover up as much skin as I can" Day says. The logic is pretty obvious: mosquitoes can't bite through most fabrics, so covered skin is protected skin
"There has been a higher number of mosquitoes in general, just because the late spring season, but as far as the genus that produces, or is the predominant carrier of West Nile Virus, we haven't seen a huge increase" Craig Calder with OPH told CFRA
