Mosquito Carrying West Nile Virus found in Northwest Bexar County

Mosquito Carrying West Nile Virus found in Northwest Bexar County

Recent news reports that a mosquito that was caught in northwest Bexar County tested positive for the West Nile virus in the community of Wildhorse. The mosquito was caught in a trap located in a drainage channel near the 10000 block of Mustang Rise on the city’s northwest side near FM 1560 and Shaenfield Road.  This area is not too far from the Villages of Westcreek.

With recent rains, and the mosquito population on the rise, we ask that all residents take the time to eliminate breeding areas within the villages by following these simple steps.

  • Keep mosquitoes from laying eggs in and near standing water.
  • Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water, such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots, or trash containers.
  • Check inside and outside your home.


  • Female mosquitoes lay several hundred eggs on the walls of water-filled containers.
  • Eggs stick to containers like glue and remain attached until they are scrubbed off.  When water covers the eggs,they hatch and become adults in about a week.
