Analyzing mosquitoes for West Nile

I recently saw a report on the evening news that said the county will spray to kill mosquitoes in specific areas if they find a mosquito infected with West Nile Virus in that area. The report showed mosquito traps and a technician using a microscope. I would like to know how could one tell if the mosquito is infected by viewing it under a microscope?
