Memorial Day weekend means the start of the itching, swatting, and spraying those pesky mosquitoes.
Here in Winnebago County officials are already seeing an increase in the mosquito activity. The West Nile Virus peaks in last August through the middle of September. Winnebago County Health department has set up a hotline to report dead crows and blue jays. It's important that you leave your address, zip code, town and number of dead birds. You should dispose of the bird yourself. The report line number is 720-4245.
