West Nile Arrives In La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2013

It took a while but La Salle County finally has its first case of West Nile Virus this year.

Mosquitoes tested earlier this week in Streator came back positive with the virus.  Mosquitoes get the virus by feeding off infected birds.

Bureau County has had three mosquito batches test positive for West Nile along with a horse late last month in Ladd. Putnam County has had one mosquito batch test positive for the virus.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
