Mosquitoes are the primary carrier of West Nile Virus, a virus that's found throughout Texas. So far no cases have been detected this year, but in East Texas cases usually show up in August.
Now is the time for people to think about prevention. Tommy Stanley Jr. thinks about it night and day. For the City of Nacogdoches he routinely gets up at 2:30 in the morning to fog neighborhoods with mosquito foggers so adults and kids aren't pestered by the stinging insects. Before going home at night Stanley loads up with another mosquito killer. Stanley explained, "What it is is the larvicide. They look like little pellets." The mosquito baby killers are shot into standing water where mosquitos breed. Stanley said, "The ditches on the trail, Lanana Creek Trail I try to get them after work. I treat that water before the larvae gets into an adult mosquito."
