The health district says residents can lessen their chances of contracting the illnesses by using EPA-registered insect repellents containing DEET (diethyltoluamide), Picaridin, IR3535, Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), or 2-undecanone; wearing trousers and long-sleeved shirts to reduce mosquito exposure when outdoors; and eliminating areas of standing water around the home, including non-circulating ponds, "green" swimming pools and accumulated sprinkler runoff.

The mosquitoes that transmit West Nile virus may breed near people's homes in storm drains, shallow ditches, retention ponds, and unused pools. And MDHHS says that as temperatures rise, mosquitoes and the virus develop more quickly.

The birds were found sick or dead in early May and tested positive this week. Birds are the natural animal reservoir for the virus and carry it in their blood. Three birds and a bat were discovered to have the diseases, which can be harmful to humans.

For those who experience illness, it typically comes on about three to 15 days after being bitten and carries mild symptoms of fever, headache and body aches, Stanuszek said. A second crow in Saginaw County was also found to have the virus.
