Mosquitoes found in county test positive for West Nile

First State sees first signs of West Nile this year

The Department of Environmental Management said Friday that 115 mosquito samples from 30 traps set statewide July 31 tested negative.

Denis Shapovalov upsets top seed Rafael Nadal at Rogers Cup
On two occasions in the second set, Shapovalov fell behind 0-30 on his serve, but he responded by winning four consecutive points. Rafael Nadal admitted his defeat to wildcard Denis Shapovalov at the Rogers Cup in Montreal was his "worst of the year".

Four other traps in the testing surveillance project are created to attract Aedes Egypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes - two species known to carry Zika virus. "We expect West Nile to be present to some degree until the first frost". So far, neither species has been identified during testing, which will continue until Labor Day.

West Nile is an illness that can be deadly for people with weakened immune systems, and the elderly, according to the health department.

"We want people to be aware that they can greatly reduce their own risks by taking some simple precautions", he said in the release.
