TULSA COUNTY MOSQUITO TRAPS TEST POSITIVE FOR
TULSA, Okla. -
The Tulsa County Health Department said two mosquito traps have tested positive for West Nile virus in the last week.
Officials said one of the traps is near downtown Collinsville and the other is near 41st and Union in west Tulsa.
The new tests bring the number of positive samples this year to three. The first one was found in June near 56th Street North and Peoria in north Tulsa.
Officials told FOX23 that despite the positive tests for West Nile virus, mosquito numbers have been decreasing over the past two weeks.
Crews will spray the areas where positive tests were collected to keep the population under control. Samples are checked weekly.
There have been no positive tests for West Nile virus in people this year in the entire state.
