After samples have continued to show mosquitos and birds carrying the West Nile virus, officials are announcing a new round of aerial spraying could happen.
This past week, 79 mosquito samples and 20 dead birds in Sacramento and Yolo Counties have tested positive for the virus. Vector Control says they are closely monitoring areas in North Sacramento County, Davis and Woodland where the virus looks to be concentrated.
Next week, vector control says, aerial spraying of those hotspots could begin.
Ground fogging of certain areas has already begun in response to this week’s findings, vector control says.
A total of 48 dead birds and 156 mosquito samples in Sacramento and Yolo Counties have tested positive for West Nile this year.
