A sample pool of mosquitoes collected within Vanderburgh County has tested positive for West Nile Virus. The Vanderburgh County Health Department will be performing focused adult mosquito control (adulticiding) in the area where West Nile activity has been found. The adulticiding operation will take place the evening of July 17, 2013, weather permitting. Fogging will begin approximately at 8:00PM and conclude by 12:00AM.
