"Over the past few weeks, West Nile virus activity has been on the rise across Ontario", Lyttle said in a release. In North America, that means that mosquito season - extending from the late spring through the fall - is West Nile season.

Mosquito bites can transmit the virus. It's now been detected in Ada County.
