PA's First West-Nile-Positive Mosquito of 2008 Season Discovered in Luzerne County
Date:6/13/2008

ter being bitten by an infected mosquito," Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff said. "Horses are most susceptible to illness after exposure, and we will continue to work with veterinarians and horse owners across the state to monitor horse populations."

Wolff said horse owners should contact their veterinarians for vaccinations against the disease.

West Nile Virus cases occur primarily in late summer or early fall. In previous years, the first positive mosquito tests were reported on June 18, 2003; July 22, 2004; July 7, 2005; and June 28, 2006 and June 12, 2008.

Last year there were 10 human cases of West Nile Virus in Pennsylvania, but no deaths were reported. The virus was found in 25 Pennsylvania counties in 2007.

Mosquitoes will develop in any standing water or puddle that lasts more than four days. Tips to eliminate standing water include:

-- Throw away tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar

water-holding containers that have accumulated on property.

-- Pay special attention to discarded tires.

-- Drill holes in the bottom of outdoor containers.

-- Drainage holes that are located on a container's sides allow enough

water to collect for mosquitoes to develop.

-- Clean clogged roof gutters as needed.

-- Turn over plastic wading pools, wheelbarrows and birdbaths when not in

use.

-- Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish.

-- Clean and chlorinate swimming pools that are not being used.

-- Use landscaping to eliminate standing water that collects on your

property.
