[ARCHIVED] Mosquitoes

CHEVERLY, MD, (ABC7) — In recent days, mosquitoes gathered in two different state bug traps in Cheverly and in Forest Heights have tested positive for West Nile virus. The experts advice to guard against bites is to search for and dump the standing water mosquitoes need to develop and to wear loose-fitting, long sleeved clothing outside.

Another bit of advice, use bug repellent even if you don’t see mosquitoes and even if you’re in an area where it hasn’t been detected because you have to assume West Nile virus is everywhere.
