Confirmed WNV cases

L.A. Public Health notes that mosquito season is from June to November and that humans "get WNV through the bite of an infected mosquito."

Officials estimate that over 10,000 people get infected each year in L.A. County since most people do not develop symptoms or only mild illness. 

Since it's peak pest season, you'll want to protect yourself from these insects.
