Residents and people traveling to the South West are reminded that mosquito bites are common in the area, especially since Spring is the season for mosquito bites.

The first mosquito born disease has been detected by the Department of Health’s Environmental Health Hazards managing scientist Dr Michael Lindsay. Barmah Forest virus has been detected for the first time this season and the discovery coincides with a rise in mosquito numbers in coastal areas of the South West.

There have also been human cases of Ross River virus in the Perth metropolitan area. Symptoms include skin rashes, fever, fatigue, headaches, sore muscles and swollen joints.

It can only be detected through a blood test.

It’s crucial to have your family protected this spring by keeping your home safe. Have your openings covered with insect screens to keep virus carrying bugs out.
