As home foreclossures continue to rise, neglected pools in foreclosed homes are becoming breeding grounds for mosquitos which may carry the West Nile virus. The Contra Costa County Mosquito and Vector District has seen a spike in calls from concerned citizens about abandoned pools and responds by treating the pools with chemicals and the release of fish that eat mosquito larvae.
