West Nile is normally carried by Mosquito's, and there is no perfect way to protect yourself. The best advice is to stay away from areas where you might get bit, and to wear "OFF" or a product like that which tends to drive away these bugs. They don't all carry it either, it is basically just bad luck if you were ever to catch it, and I would not be too worried about it unless you are getting bit a lot.
