Joe Vargas with Vector Control says that beginning next week they will begin checking Playa Lakes for mosquito larva. Vargas says mosquitoes are not a problem in Lubbock yet, but with more rain and heat that will change.
The West Nile Virus has already been found in Louisiana, and experts say it will reach Texas soon. Vargas says you should clear out any areas with free standing water because that serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
