Swatting off the mosquito population will be a big challenge this year in butte county..

Because of funding.

Butte county public health officials confirmed yesterday one person tested positive for west nile virus..

Two chickens and seven mosquitos also contracted the virus.

Action news now spoke to the count'y mosquito and vector control..

The agency gets up to four million dollars a year and has 26 employees.

But it is not enough to cover the entire county.

We have to triage we have to go to areas hot and hotter than other areas because we jsut cant be at every place at one time.

We don't have enought staff to do everything.

So we live with mosquitos and since we live with mosquitos, we're going to continue to live with west nile virus.

District manager 'matt ball' says it's only going to get worse in august and september.

He says funding for the district comes from property tax..

And that is already taking a hit from covid-19 and the camp fire.
