West Nile mosquitoes are back

From the Queens Courier:

The New York City Department of Health has detected West Nile Virus in city mosquitoes for the first time this season. The infected mosquitoes were detected in Auburndale and Pomonok in Queens, as well as in East Williamsburg and Bushwick in Brooklyn and Old Town in Staten Island.

No human cases have been detected this season and, in order to keep it that way, the Health Department has increased mosquito surveillance and mosquito larvae control efforts in affected areas.
