Mosquitos in five Colorado counties have tested positive for West Nile Virus and officials say that's earlier than normal.Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus were found in tests in Adams, Boulder, Weld, Delta and Mesa counties. Weld County reported finding the virus in mosquitoes from two separate test pools.
State health officials advise people take the "Four Ds" precautions against West Nile virus:
Drain standing water around the house weekly since that's where mosquitoes lay eggs. Be sure to empty old tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels and toys where puddles can occur.
Dusk and dawn are when mosquitoes that carry the virus are most active, so limit outdoor activities or take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
DEET is an effective ingredient to look for in insect repellents. Always follow label instructions carefully.
Dress in long sleeves and pants during dawn and dusk or in areas where mosquitoes are active.
