My wife had heard that if you use clear nail polish and apply it over the bite that it will help stop the itching. I didn't believe her at first, but what did I have to lose by trying it. Sure enough, within a little bit I realized I wasn't scratching at my legs or ankles anymore
I had no idea this was even a thing, but there is a "dead bird reporting" hotline in Wisconsin. It's to help monitor West Nile Virus, so the state will actually test the bird to see if it has the disease. DO NOT TOUCH THE DEAD BIRD WITH YOUR BARE HANDS.
