West Nile virus found in batch of mosquitoes in northern Illinois. While MMAD has not found a positive batch in our District to date, residents should still take precautions while outdoors. Recent rains should make it easier to identify sources of standing water in your back yards- remember to drain those sources to limit breeding habitats. In addition, if you plan to be outdoors your best defense against mosquitoes is insect repellent.
