With all the rain recently, I've been concerned about the influx of mosquitoes, namely the mosquitoes that carry West Nile and Chikungunya viruses.

The CDC just confirmed 11 cases of the chikungunya virus in Texas. All patients who tested positive for chikungunya acquired it while in a foreign country.

I contacted Aaron Vannoy with Vector Control in Abilene to see is those virus carrying mosquitoes existed in Abilene and how to eliminate them. For Aaron's response see video above.
