BATON ROUGE - Mosquito trucks will hit the road spraying in East Baton Rouge Parish tonight for the first time this season.

Mosquito abatement officials said the trucks will be out in south Baton Rouge around sundown this evening.

Randy Vaeth with mosquito abatement said they usually go out spraying in March, but haven't had to this year so far.

Vaeth said traps West Baton Rouge Parish recently detected mosquitoes with the West Nile Virus in them, but traps in East Baton Rouge Parish haven't had any test positive so far.
