Mosquitoes found near Whitendale and Mooney Blvd. in Visalia tested positive for the West Nile Virus.
The mosquitoes were found in a trap on the 1800 block of West Sunnyside.
It's important to protect yourself from insect bites, so use mosquito repellent with DEET, wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors during dawn or dusk and drain standing water that may produce mosquitoes.
