Mosquitoes carrying West Nile found in Merced

Just last week, I wrote a post about how to protect yourself from mosquitoes bites to reduce the risk of being infected with West Nile virus. At the time, no virus activity had been detected in Merced County. However, this past Monday, officials at the county’s Mosquito Abatement District issued warnings in three Merced County areas where mosquito and sentinel chicken samples tested positive for West Nile. These include rural areas in Dos Palos and Hilmar and the city of Merced.
