West Nile Virus isn’t as big of a problem in the United States as it is in other parts of the world, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods. In fact, as of September 30th, a total of 46 states and the District of Columbia have reported West Nile Virus infections to the CDC. To protect yourself and your family, use mosquito repellents containing DEET anytime you go outside. Wear long shirts and pants when possible, and remove standing water around your property.
