West Nile Virus – Important Information

wnvtraps

West Nile Virus specimen traps.

The public can help the program by reducing any mosquito habitat on their property. More information regarding the DEP WNV program can be found on the website:  westnile.state.pa.us.

Don’t invite mosquitoes to your backyard; remove standing water from your property. Dump water from buckets, flower pots, kiddie pools, old tires, tarps, recycling containers, planters and trash cans, and other containers. Clean gutters, storm drains and window wells. Dump birdbaths daily. Even one cup of water in one of these containers can breed thousands of mosquitoes. Ornamental ponds, rain barrels, ditches and areas where standing water can’t be removed can be treated with Bti, a naturally occurring bacterium that kills the mosquito larvae. The larvae of mosquitoes live in stagnant water and feed on organic debris. The best defense to prevent mosquito borne illness is to not attract them. Many mosquitoes are not strong flyers and stay within a few hundred yards of their breeding container.

Don’t invite mosquitoes into your house. Make sure that all door and window screens are in good repair. Mosquitoes also need an area to rest and will congregate in overgrown vegetation. Many homeowners use corrugated drain pipe attached to downspouts to move storm water from their homes.  The corrugations hold water and are a breeding spot for mosquitoes. To avoid this problem use smooth drain pipe, or cover the ends of the corrugated pipe with a fine mesh material such as pantyhose. This will keep female mosquitoes from entry. 

Clothing and gear can also be treated with Permethrin. The treatment is only applied to the gear and never to skin. Follow the package directions and the protection should last through multiple washing’s. This spray can be found in the outdoor, camping, or hunting department of many stores. One bottle will treat many items of gear. This product is also effective in repelling ticks.
