Mosquitos collected from a Corunna trap on Aug. 23 tested positive for West Nile virus, according to Lambton Public Health.
This is the third confirmed case of West Nile found in Lambton this summer. A mosquito pool in Wyoming and a crow in Sarnia tested positive for the virus earlier this season.
Bites by infected mosquitos can spread West Nile to humans.
