PLEASANT HILL, CA – JUNE 29: Mosquitos are seen inside a trap on June 29, 2012 in Pleasant Hill, California. As reports of mosquitoes with West Nile virus are increasing across the country and several people have been confirmed to be infected by the potentially dangerous disease, the Contra Costa County Mosquito and Vector Control District is testing mosquito larvae found in standing water throughout the county and is using mosquito fish and BVA Larvacide oils to eradicate the pest.

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Mosquitoes have been out in force for what seems like weeks in the Capital City.

On Monday, Mosquito Abatement & Rodent Control reported that there were “nine positive West Nile Virus pool locations for the past week.”

With that in mind, EBR Mosquito Abatement and Rodent Control is conducting an aerial spray mission on Wednesday night.

The mission is going to start at 8:30 p.m. and cover Mid-City as well as North Baton Rouge.
