The town of Greenwich has lifted its ban on outdoor activities at dawn and dusk, the times during the hot weather when mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus are most apt to bite.
At least 40 towns and cities in Connecticut already have mosquitoes that have tested positive for West Nile Virus.
Dr. Theodore Andreadis said the virus has been detected in mosquitoes trapped in 13 towns in lower Fairfield County.
It’s a good time to make sure you’ve stocked up on bug spray, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.
Hot weather is the primary reason for the abundance of mosquitos that have been trapped and infected with West Nile Virus this summer.
A weeks worth of rain on top of all the snow we saw this past winter are the ingredients for what will likely be a big mosquito population.
