(Toledo, OH)  Mosquitoes are starting to die down for the year but that doesn't mean you should take preventative measures.

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has confirmed its first human West Nile case for 2018. 

Last year, the health department reported two human cases, that number up from the zero cases reported in 2016. 

The TLCHD said that infections most often occur from May through October in Ohio. 

There are no vaccines to prevent, or methods to treat West Nile virus but statistics show that less than 1 percent of infected people develop a serious illness.
