According to the Department of Public Health, the St. Louis area is home to more than 50 different species of mosquito.

"The two pools, or two trap sites that were positive, were found within the City of Kitchener, but really what it means is that conditions are right anywhere across the region", Miller said.

House mosquito (Culex): This species is most known as the carrier of the West Nile Virus.

Cases generally tend to spike during the summer and fall months, between June and September, when activity is the most common.

Although there is no vaccine to protect against West Nile Virus, over-the-counter pain medication can help treat symptoms such as fever.

Some are new, others are old - and thanks to the new "destructible demon" feature, some can be torn into itty-bitty chunks. Of course, the coolest enemies deserve the coolest deaths.

The CCHD says that the infected person is over the age of 65 and was exhibiting WNV symptoms, which led to being tested, but is not able to release any other patient-specific information due to privacy laws.

"Early symptoms can include fever, muscle weakness, stiff neck, confusion, severe headache, sudden sensitivity to light, tremors, numbness, or vision loss".

This year, deaths have so far been reported in Iowa, North Carolina and Texas.

Two positive test results for West Nile virus in Kitchener is a good reminder to residents in Waterloo region to take precautions to avoid being bit by mosquitoes, a health official says. The health department suggests using DEET and other repellents, wearing long sleeves and trousers and avoiding being outside between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. The health department will also continue spraying pesticides until this year's first "freezing" temperatures. But the elderly and those with compromised immune systems can become seriously ill and could die.
