First West Nile Virus Positive Mosquitos in Tustin

WNV Posting Eng 8-5x11 for Cities

The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) has confirmed the first mosquito samples infected with West Nile virus (WNV) in the City of Tustin. The surveillance traps were set at Main Street and Prospect. 

Inspectors will be out in the two areas to check known sources of mosquito breeding and try to identify any unknown sources. West Nile virus advisory posters will be placed in the affected areas and if OCMVCD has continued positive mosquito samples next week, an advisory postcard will be mailed out to all nearby residents and businesses. 

At this time, please take precautions and wear mosquito repellents when mosquitoes are most active (dawn or dusk) and dump any standing water in or near your home. For more information, please contact the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District at https://www.ocvector.org/ or (714) 971-2421 or (949) 654-2421
