Albany- Tropical Storm Frances brought more than seven inches of rain to our area and Hurricane Ivan is on the way with more.

That left a lot of standing water. Dougherty County Environmental Control workers are still fighting mosquitoes by spraying and treating standing water.

"We've only had our West Nile Virus cases, I'll say this, late in the year," said Donell Mathis, Dougherty Environmental Control Director.

But they want you to get rid of water around your home.

"Just take those containers, turn them upside down that they don't hold water. Bird baths, old swimming pools, pools that they've had for the pets," Mathis said. "Just clean those things out. Just clean them up and empty all the standing water."

The chemical the trucks are spraying this year has low toxicity and almost no scent.
