McLennan, Bell Counties Free of West Nile
With summer comes greater heat, and with greater heat comes greater numbers of mosquitos.
However, there have not yet been any human cases of West Nile Virus. Local health departments are not planning aerial spraying, but are working to educate the public about safety measures.
Mosquitos are most active at dusk and dawn. To prevent bites, it is recommended to wear long sleeved, light colored clothing, use repellant with deet, and avoid standing water around the home.
