Lowndes County - Many of you are already seeing problems with mosquitoes.

In Lowndes County, they're spraying in areas where mosquitoes previously tested positive for West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

So far this year, tests show current mosquitoes are not the type that carry those diseases. 

"The mosquitoes that everyone is so uncomfortable with right now, truly are that. They are nuisance mosquitoes, not necessarily mosquitoes that carry disease. Those mosquitoes can be eliminated by reducing the mosquito habitat," says Paige Dukes of the Lowndes County Commission office.

They say the best way to prevent problems with mosquitoes is to get rid of standing water around your home.

Last year statewide, there were 50-confirmed West Nile cases in people.
