Lowndes County - A human case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis in South Georgia has city and county officials taking extra steps to prevent the virus.

People living in Valdosta and Lowndes County can pick up free larvicide tablets at the Fire and Rescue Headquarters on the Madison Highway.

The tablets attack the mosquito larva or eggs in standing water.

"They last for about 30 to 60 days and the mosquito larva eat on the tablets, causing them to explode," said Lowndes Fire Chief Jim Fielding.

You can pick up the larvicide tablets Monday through Friday between eight and five. The city and county are also actively spraying to control the mosquito population.
