Scientists Hope Mosquito Trap Will Help Fight West Nile

Sacramento, CA — Researchers with the University of California say they have developed an improved mosquito trap that will help in the fight against West Nile virus.

By trapping the insects, scientists are able to determine whether the mosquitoes are infected with the virus.

Control agencies can then attack areas with infected insects. The new traps will be placed throughout the state in late May.
