The Greenville High School Electricity Class recently fixed more than 10 mosquito traps used for the Bond County Health Department’s Vector program.  The Vector program is an effort to alert the county if the West Nile Virus is present in mosquitoes and a danger to residents.

The students completed soldering, replaced wiring and brackets, and cleaned the equipment.  Health Department Public Administrator Mark Ayers thanked the students for their help and for saving taxpayer dollars in replacement costs.
