Tulsa, Okla. - It's been rainy, it's getting warmer, so you know what THAT means.
We have to start thinking about mosquitos.
John Baker with the Tulsa City-County Health Department says it's top of mind for them too.
"At this point, we are actually putting out our mosquito traps," Baker said. "We are placing 75 throughout Tulsa County."
He said they expect to see the floodwater species of mosquitos during the next couple of weeks.
"They aren't particularly the West Nile virus carriers, that's the good news," Baker said. "They are primarily nuisance mosquitos."
Oklahoma has anywhere from 12 to 17 different species of mosquitos, 3 or 4 of which are known for carrying West Nile virus, Baker said.
He said the West Nile carriers are more common during the hotter parts of summer.
Baker said now is a good time for people to check around outside their house for anything that might have collected any standing water and remove it, such as buckets, kids toys, gutters, etc.
