Have the mosquitos been biting where you live?

The Illinois Department of Public Health says three mosquito batches have tested positive for West Nile Virus in Bureau County.  The mosquitos were in Ohio, Princeton and Bureau.  One mosquito batch in Mark has tested positive for West Nile.  La Salle County has had no West Nile cases in mosquitos, birds or humans.

While 30 birds have tested positive for West Nile this year in Illinois, there are no human cases.
