Standing water and mosquitoes are a potentially deadly combination and county officials want to ensure residents are safe as possible during their time outdoors.
Mosquitoes are known carriers of the West Nile Virus. Only about one in 500 of the insects carry the virus, which can lead to serious illness or death.
The increased number of West Nile cases in the United States in recent weeks makes it the largest outbreak of the virus since the late 1990s, according to the Centers for Disease Control. More than 1,000 cases have been reported, with nearly 50 deaths.
