West Nile Detected In Findlay Mosquito Population

Mosquito traps set by Hancock Public Health have yielded bugs that have tested positive for West Nile Virus. To lower the chances of a human case, the agency will increase mosquito spaying in the city of Findlay over the next several days. The positive results came from traps near Swale Park, northwest of downtown.

To reduce the West Nile risk, Hancock Public Health urges residents to clear properties of standing water, wear loose light-colored clothing, and applying repellent with DEET as the active ingredient when you are outdoors during active mosquito periods around dusk and dawn
