Mosquitoes Testing Positive For West Nile In SoCal

The wet winter weather has brought more positive tests for West Nile Virus this year.  Mosquitoes collected in the Rancho Cucamonga area have tested positive for west Nile virus.

This adds to the positive tests already collected in Chino, Chino Hills, Ontario and previously in Rancho Cucamonga. It is not unusual for mosquitoes to test positive for West Nile virus, especially during the summer months.

The West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District staff has intensified mosquito surveillance, as well as efforts to control adult and larval mosquitoes in these areas to reduce the mosquito populations and interrupt the disease transmission cycle. In this segment of Eye on the Community you learn how to ‘fight the bite’ and what you can do to reduce the mosquito population around your home.
