West Nile Found in Fresno

A mosquito sample from the Fresno area has tested positive for West Nile Virus. This is the first positive sample in Fort Bend County in several years. Following procedure, mosquito spraying in the area will be intensified until a negative sample is gathered from the area. The intensive spraying is targeted at areas likely to hold water including ditches and drains. In addition to extra spraying, Road & Bridge is also using a larvacide to prevent future mosquitoes from hatching.

Please be careful, wear long sleeves and pants, use bug spray and stay indoors when you can.
