Dealing with West Nile virus in Saskatoon

This morning we got a chance to hear from Dr. Johnmark Opondo on the topic of the West Nile virus.

Opondo said that the prime season for West Nile is upon us and that we should take the virus seriously. He noted that the mosquitoes which carry the virus generally come out during the dusk and dawn hours of the day.

Mosquitoes are a part of living in Saskatchewan, but I’ll admit that I do not regularly use bug spray or DEET to rid myself of the pesky flies.

After sitting down with Opondo, I think that I might finally take the proper pre-cautions and spray on the DEET during my next golf game or while attending one of Saskatoon’s outdoor festivals this summer.
