Follow-up Mosquito Traps near Southwest WilCo Regional Park Test Positive for West Nile Virus

A follow-up sampling of mosquitoes taken at two expanded traps near the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park tested positive for West Nile Virus. The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) set up two expanded trap sites following last week’s positive mosquito sample. Both of the expanded traps came up with positive test results, while the original trap tested negative. No other samples were found to be positive from routine trapping this week as part of the WCCHD Integrated Vector Management program. Health officials strongly encourage everyone to remain vigilant about protecting themselves from mosquito bites and preventing mosquito breeding on their personal property. Please eliminate all standing water around your house or on your property. Mosquitoes cannot breed without standing water. Residents should treat ponds, rain barrels, or other stagnant water that can’t be drained with a larvicide. Please apply the treatment based on its labeled use. These products can be found at local home improvement stores.
