The Franklin County Mosquito Control District has collected mosquitoes positive for West Nile virus for the first time in 2018 in Franklin County.  The mosquitoes were trapped approximately 1.5 miles Northwest of the City of Pasco in the Goose Hollow neighborhood.  Due to the positive WNv detection the District has increased surveillance, larviciding and adulticiding measures in an attempt to depress the mosquito population.  These additional measures will be continued through the remainder of the mosquito season.

We advise all residents of Franklin County to take extra care to dump out any containers that hold water for more than five (5) days or call the District office (509) 545-4083 if the water cannot be drained, so a technician can survey for mosquito breeding activity.  Additional safety measures should be taken when in areas that mosquitoes are active, these include wearing long sleeve shirts, long pants and using mosquito repellent.
