Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Vector Management is reporting the third York County mosquito sample testing positive for West Nile Virus in 2015. A sample containing Culex restuans collected by Penn State Extension on June 25th in Newberry Township has tested positive. Additional enhanced mosquito surveillance, sampling and larval control is being performed by Penn State Extension in Newberry Township.
The greatest risk of human West Nile Virus infection is from July through September. Residents throughout York County are reminded to do what they can to eliminate mosquito breeding sources. One bucket or tire in someone’s backyard can produce hundreds to thousands of mosquitoes in a year. Residents may also purchase a variety of mosquito control and repellent products from most home and garden centers.
York County residents can report mosquito concerns through the Pennsylvania West Nile Virus websitewww.westnile.state.pa.us. Doing so will better assist our program to document areas of concern. Keep in mind that the West Nile Virus Program attempts to educate residents and individuals may need to report neighbor complaints to their local municipality to rectify the concern.
For information about West Nile Virus symptoms in humans, contact the Pennsylvania Department of Health at 1-877-PA-Health
