A LaSalle County resident over 65 years who became ill during the first part of August and tested positive for West Nile virus has died.

Only about 20% of the people infected will notice symptoms that may include headache, body aches, joint pains and fatigue.

So far this year, Kansas has had two cases of the neuro invasive form of West Nile, both in Johnson County.

Birds and horses can also contract the virus.

Residents can fight mosquito bites by eliminating spawning areas for the bloodsuckers, according to York County Mosquito Control.

However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms. In some people, severe illness including meningitis or encephalitis, or even death, can occur. Schroeder says it's also best to avoid dusk until midnight because that is when mosquitoes are most active.

Prevent mosquitoes from breeding by removing stagnant water from items around your property, such as tin cans, plastic containers, flower pots, discarded tires, roof gutters, and downspouts.

Make sure window and door screens are in good fix to prevent mosquito entry. If not, mosquitoes, all it does is take a cap full of water in order for them to breathe.

This is Boston's second confirmed human case of WNV this year, bringing the total number of reported cases in MA to five this year.

"We did get our first positive pool back in June, so that sort of gives you a sense of when we're first seeing the virus in the mosquito population".

When outdoors, wear shoes and socks, long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535, according to label instructions.
