There's another positive West Nile Virus test to tell you about. This one is in College Station near University Drive and Highway 6.
Mosquitoes on Summerglen tested positive when they were collected on July 16.
It's the third batch of bugs that's been positive this month, and you're reminded that the whole county is positive for the disease.
Here are some reminders on preventing West Nile from the Brazos County Health Department:
- Drain standing water around the house, including tires, cans, flowerpots, rain gutters, buckets, wading pools, puddles, etc. Trim grass and shrubs and do not over water lawns and gardens.
- Wear insect repellent containing DEET.
- Stay indoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
- Dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors to prevent bites.
