DEP Urges Pennsylvanians to Take Precautions to Reduce West Nile Virus Threat
Date:8/21/2009

ulated on property;
  • Pay special attention to discarded tires, which can hold stagnant water;
  • Maintain drainage holes that are located on the sides of gardening containers that might 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; and
  • Use landscaping to eliminate standing water that collects on your property.
  • Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Certain species carry the West Nile Virus, which, when transmitted to people, can cause West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of getting West Nile encephalitis.

    Until the General Assembly approves a final state budget, comprehensive West Nile Virus spraying programs must be suspended. DEP will end grant funding for the West Nile Virus Program in 36 counties on Sept. 1. Grant funding to the remaining 31 counties for spraying operations and protection will continue for the remainder of calendar year 2009.

    DEP will provide limited monitoring in the areas where grant funding has been eliminated that have historically been associated with West Nile transmission. If mosquitoes in these areas are found to carry the virus, the department will take necessary measures to reduce the mosquito population through either larval or adult mosquito control.
