Another day, another batch of mosquitoes test positive for West Nile.

This time, mosquitoes collected from Tarrow and Lincoln Avenue, and on Neal Pickett Drive in College Station were found to carry the virus.

These are the sixth and seventh positive cases found here in the Brazos Valley this year. But the Health Department is reminding residents that all of Brazos County is positive for the virus.

Just last week, state tests confirmed the first human case of West Nile this year.
