  • Dead Bird Reporting and Disposal :Saskatchewan people have been helpful in reporting dead corvids (crows, ravens, magpies, blue and grey jays) for surveillance of West Nile Virus. Dead corvids will not be picked up by the Town for testing. Please dispose of dead birds in the following manner: Use a shovel or leak-proof gloves to pick up dead bird;Secure it in a double bag and place it in the garbage for transfer to a landfill;Alternately, you can bury the dead bird deep enough in the ground so that it will not be disturbed. 

  • Mosquito Season and the West Nile Virus    Be Aware, Be Prepared West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne virus that can cause disease in anyone. The risk of becoming seriously ill is low in children but increases with age and with levels of the virus circulating in the mosquito population. West Nile Virus is transmitted to people through bites from infected mosquitoes. The main carriers in Saskatchewan are Culex Tarsalis. What You Can Do; Personal protection and mosquito breeding site reduction will help the risk of West Nile Virus to you and your family.  

      • Wear protective, light-coloured clothing (long-sleeved shirts or jackets; long pants and socks). 
      • Use mosquito netting on strollers to protect infants and toddlers. 
      • Use bug spray  
      • Clean up any source where standing water collects. Wheel barrels, old tires, rain barrels, bird baths, etc. are items that collect standing water.  
      • Remove water that collects on pool covers, turn over wading pools when not in use.  
      • Fill in depressions in lawn areas and cut lawn frequently.  
      • Clean out dense shrubbery where mosquitoes like to breed and rest.
