VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Health officials continue to see positive West Nile Pools throughout Vigo County.

Vigo County Vector Control treats all areas that have positive pools.

To reduce potential mosquito breeding grounds:

  • Discard old tires, tin cans, ceramic pots or other containers that can hold water; 
  • Repair failed septic systems; 
  • Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors; 
  • Keep grass cut short and shrubbery trimmed; 
  • Clean clogged roof gutters, particularly if leaves tend to plug up the drains; 
  • Flush ornamental fountains and birdbaths periodically; and, 
  • Aerate ornamental pools, or stock them with predatory fish.

Those are all tested on a state level.
