Three birds have tested positive in Michigan for West Nile Virus.

WestNileVirusMosquito
The positive birds were found sick or dead in early May and tested positive at Michigan State University last week. Birds are the natural reservoir for the virus and carry it in their blood.

Mosquitoes become infected when they bite an infected bird. The mosquitoes that transmit West Nile virus may breed near people’s homes in storm drains, shallow ditches, retention ponds, and unused pools.

They will readily come indoors to bite if windows and door screens are not maintained. As summer temperatures rise, mosquitoes and the virus develop more quickly so it is important to protect yourself from mosquito bites as the weather warms.
