Mosquito and tick season has officially begun in Ohio, and the Ohio Department of Health urges people to “fight the bite”.

The "fight the bight" campaign encourages Ohioans to take precautions to prevent bites from mosquitos and ticks which can carry diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika virus and Lyme disease.

In Ohio, ticks are most active April through September, and mosquitoes May through October.

Ohio has a type of mosquito that can transmit West Nile virus. A total of 17 cases were reported in the state last year. The primary mosquito that transmits Zika virus is found in the tropics and southern United States, but it is not known to be established in Ohio.

Nationally, there have been more than 5,000 travel-associated Zika cases in the U.S. since Jan. 2015.
