In Case of Emergency Dial 911
Additional Safety Topics
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, which includes puddles, stagnant ditches, and containers such as old tires, buckets, cans, neglected swimming pools, etc. Storm sewers, culverts, and catch-basins, etc. provide an outdoor resting place for mosquitoes most commonly associated with West Nile Virus (WNV). It is important to apply mosquito repellant when participating in any outdoor activity - especially when fishing, hiking or bicycling at night.
In 2017, Ohio had 29 counties that had WNV virus activity. As well as 600 WNV positive mosquitos.
Any person bitten by a mosquito infected with West Nile Virus (WNV) is at risk.
