Mosquito Control Program Set to Begin in Tulsa County
It's mosquito season again, and the Tulsa County Health Department is getting ready for testing to try and control West Nile virus. The mosquito borne disease shows up every year now in the Tulsa area. Health Department Environmental Services Manager Bernard Dindy says traps will be set out next week to test for samples of mosquitos that may be carrying the virus. 50 traps will be set out at various locations throughout the county. Last year there were only a couple of cases of West Nile, but with a wet spring, it's expected this year could be much worse.
