PARMA, Idaho — Following reports of more mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus in Canyon County, fogging operations will be underway on Tuesday night.
Mosquitoes carrying the virus were caught in two traps near Parma last week. The Idaho Bureau of Laboratories confirms that the mosquitoes tested very-high for the virus.
Twin Falls and Elmore counties also caught mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile.
To protect yourself against the virus, make sure to cover up your skin whenever outside, use bug spray, get rid of standing water on your property and try to avoid going outside during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
