Tourist Mark Berman says, "We are going to spray absolutely, don't plan to get bitten or ill."

The mosquitoes were discovered in the Sherwood area, near Sanger in eastern Fresno County.

Mulligan says this dry hot weather isn't helping the issue.

FRESNO – Three campuses in the Fresno Unified School District are already “back to school” through the Summer Bridge Program, providing students with a head start on school routines and extra academic help. The schools are:
