The Vanderburgh County Health Department says evidence of the West Nile Virus has been found in the county.
A total of two pools of mosquitoes from the same location were found to be positive for the virus.
To date, over 1400 mosquitos have been submitted by the Vanderburgh County Health Department for West Nile Virus testing.
The Vanderburgh County Health Department is going to perform focused adulticiding operations in areas where the samples were collected and significant mosquito activity has been verified.
The Vanderburgh County Health Department will continue to focus its efforts on habitat elimination, education, and treatment of stagnant or standing water as these are the most effective forms of mosquito control.
The Health Department continues to ask residents to:
*Be Smart. Take special precautions when outdoors between dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active;
*Be Safe. Use insect repellant containing DEET, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus; and
*Be Certain. Make sure your property is free of any standing water, which could be breeding grounds for the mosquitoes that carry the virus. Empty flowerpots, buckets, old tires, and clogged gutters.
