West Nile Virus in Logan Circle

MosquitoIf you thought moving to Logan Circle meant trading mosquitoes and West Nile virus for prostitutes and robberies, think again!  I received an email from Lakisha Thompson from the DC Department of Health warning us that a pool of water on the 1200 block of N Street NW had tested positive for the virus.

According to Ms. Thompson, mosquitoes have a very limited range (only a maximum of 150 feet) from their home pool, so please take the time to dump out any containers with standing water that might be on your property.  It can make the difference!
