West Nile Mosquito Found in Bexar County

Bexar County is increasing its abatement program after a mosquito tests positive for West Nile Virus.

The mosquito was caught in a trap in the northwestern part of the county last week.

“We got notification on Monday that one of the mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile Virus,” Public Works Director Renee Green said.

No one has come down with the illness.

“We took steps (Thursday) morning to notify the adjacent neighborhood to where that trap was located,” she said. “Just reminding them, that even though we’re going into fall, they still need to be diligent with emptying containers in their backyards and making sure there are no opportunities for mosquitoes to breed in standing water.”

The county treated that neighborhood again, after the positive test.
