Mosquitoes Carrying West Nile Virus Found In Columbus

Columbus Public Health officials say mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have been found on the South side, and two areas will be sprayed on Thursday morning.

Two groups of mosquito pools tested positive for the virus for the first time this season. Spraying will be conducted in an area bounded by Frank Road to the north and I-270 to the south, and in an area bounded by Sullivant Avenue to the north and Clime Road to the south. The City also plans to spray Friday in two areas where high concentrations of mosquitoes have been found. One is on the west side, bounded by Sullivant avenue to the north and Hall Road to the south. The other is the South side, bounded by Hilock Road to the north and Williams Road to the south.
