Zika trap locations in Palm Beach County
PALM BEACH COUNTY (CBS12) —
After a public outcry, Miami-Dade decided to release where all the traps are that have captured Zika-positive mosquitos. CBS12 asked Palm Beach County leaders if they plan to do the same thing here.
In response, county leaders say they do not plan to release all of the trap locations on a regular basis because there is no defined cluster of zika-carrying mosquitos in Palm Beach County.
But Palm Beach County Mosquito Control did tell us where some of the traps are including places like downtown Lake Worth, the Delray Beach Fire Department and community gardens in Jupiter.
"If we were to get mosquito-borne local transmission here or if we were to get any positive mosquitos in our mosquito pool, we will definitely act more like Miami is," Chris Reisinger with mosquito control said.
The county says the trap locations are being changed on a regular basis.
Some traps are even set in people’s yards with the homeowners’ permission.
