West Nile case confirmed in The Woodlands – Community Impact Newspaper

Lynn Aldrich, manager of environmental services for the township, said specific locations of where the sample was drawn from are not announced.

“We don’t want people to think it’s not in [their] neighborhood,” Aldrich said. “Just because we don’t catch mosquitoes in your neighborhood doesn’t mean they’re not there. We want everybody to take appropriate precautions.”

She also said announcement of specific areas are not mandated by the Attorney General.

The township and Montgomery County Mosquito Abatement team have initiated a response recommended by the TDSHS, which includes larviciding, spraying of select storm drains and targeting street spraying.

According to the township, no reports of human illnesses have been reported. The township is urging residents to protect themselves and families from mosquito bites.

The TDSHS reports that the risk of contracting the West Nile Virus is “very low.”
