Another mosquito tests positive for West Nile virus in Commerce

Another mosquito has tested positive for West Nile Virus in Commerce, according to a spokesman for the city of Commerce.

Both Commerce and Texas A&M University-Commerce have been testing mosquitos for various diseases and, last week, were notified that a positive test was received.

Emergency Management officials said the areas that tested positive now appear to be free from the virus; one additional test has returned positive results.

Workers in Commerce have begun spraying for mosquitoes in the areas where the infected insects were found and will continue spraying for three days. At the same time, city staff will continue to test for infected mosquitoes in all areas of Commerce.

It is recommended that everyone take extra precautionary measures in protecting themselves from mosquitoes.  When outside, wear light colored clothing, use an insect repellent containing DEET, wear long sleeves and pants.  To aid in eliminating mosquito-breeding sites, it is encouraged to do away with any standing water from flowerpots, buckets, barrels, and other containers.  Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out and always, empty children's wading/swimming pools and store on their side after use.
