Indiana (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Bug spray is crucial for night-time events in order to avoid mosquitoes that carry the West Nile virus.
Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have already been spotted in the Hoosier state.
State officials say mosquitoes in Orange County have tested positive for the virus.
This is much earlier than the first cases reported in the state a year ago when the virus was found in mosquitoes in 34 Indiana counties.
Temperatures and rainfall from here forward will play a significant roll in the severity of the virus.
Common symptoms of West Nile include a high fever with a stiff neck. See a doctor immediately if experiencing these symptoms.
