Officials in Ohio and Georgia have detected West Nile Virus.
Two mosquito traps in Ohio tested positive for the disease, and one in southwest Georgia tested positive.
It spreads quickly this time of year.
With standing water from last week's rain, you need to be on alert.
Agriculture officials in Alabama are also urging horse owners to get their horses vaccinated - not just for West Nile, but also for EEE, Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
EEE causes swelling of the brain and spinal cord.
Two horses tested positive for EEE in Mobile and Washington counties.
The mortality rate in horses from West Nile Virus is around 30 percent.
For EEE, it's almost 90 percent.
Symptoms include convulsions, a fever above 103, and paralysis.
Owners may also notice an irregular gait, teeth grinding, and staggering.
