West Nile in Benton Co. Mosquitoes

For the first time this summer, West Nile virus is detected in mosquitoes in Benton County.

It's unknown exactly how many mosquitoes tested positive, but they came from a trap near the Yakima-Benton County line.

As a result,  the Benton County Mosquito Control District plans mosquito spraying tomorrow (Saturday) night beginning at 10pm.

It recommends residents in the spray zone wash any vegetables.
