As mentioned earlier, West Nile cases are up in the Chicago area and spraying has started. Last Friday, officials said that the number of infected mosquito pools found in Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) traps jumped 33 percent last week, bringing 2005's cumulative total from 45 to 60. What that means is more spraying. If you live on the south and southwest sides, you were sprayed last night. Tonight is the far north and northwest sides again. Here is a full map of the spraying areas.[PDF]
