The Connecticut Mosquito Management Program announced that some mosquitoes in Milford tested positive for West Nile virus.
They say the mosquitoes that were tested were trapped on June 21.
Officials say these are the first West Nile-positive mosquitos identified by the state this year.
To reduce being bitten by mosquitoes, the state recommends residents minimize time spent outside between dusk and dawn, make sure door and window screens are in good repair, and to wear long pants, socks and long sleeves when outdoors for long periods of time.
