It’s bad enough that Kings County has already reported its first human case of West Nile Virus this year. The mosquito-borne virus has alerted residents to watch for any standing water hazards around their properties. However, there’s more cause for concern. The Kings County Mosquito Abatement Authority has now reported that its first detection of Aedes aegypti has been captured in the county—three adult mosquitoes collected from the City of Corcoran. This mosquito is not native to California, but has established itself in Fresno, Clovis, Madera and throughout portions of Southern California.
