Carter Creek Mosquitoes Test Positive For West Nile

There's another spotting of West Nile Virus, this one in Bryan.

Mosquitos collected July 16 in the 3500 block of Carter Creek tested positive for the disease.

This is the fourth positive mosquito pool in Brazos County this year.

The health department reminds residents that the entire county is positive for the West Nile Virus, and urges residents to practice the Four D's:
· 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.
