BOISE — More mosquitoes in Ada and Canyon counties have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

The Ada County Mosquito Abatement District says one sample was confirmed, while two others were sent to the Idaho State Lab for further testing.

The district says they’ve responded to and treated all of the locations where the samples were found and will continue to monitor the locations throughout the summer.

This is the second round of positive tests in Ada County. The district announced last week that mosquitoes in the area of Beacon Light and Linder Roads had tested positive for West Nile.
