May 13, 2016: West Nile News Update for Texas

Dr. Seema Yasmin reports that although the “Zika virus has been dominating the headlines… the mosquito-spread infection that Texans should worry about is a more familiar foe — West Nile virus

Dr. James Kennedy, mosquito expert and biology professor at the University of North Texas believes that “One of the most common kinds of mosquitoes flying around North Texas is Culex quinquefasciatus, the bug that spreads West Nile. And the weather so far has been favorable for the mosquito.

“The conditions here are very similar to 2012, when we had a big outbreak of West Nile virus,” said Kennedy. “I don’t want to spread panic, but I suspect we may see more West Nile virus this year than we’ve seen in the past few years.”
