WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Just about everyone enjoys getting outside more as the days get longer and warmer as summer approaches. But it also means the start of the mosquito season in Westchester County.
Westchester had two recorded cases of West Nile Virus, a disease carried by mosquitoes, in the 2013 calendar year.
To help protect themselves, residents should remove anything that might hold standing water, such as wheelbarrows, buckets and old tires and report standing water that cannot be removed to 914-813-5000.
