Mosquitos Abound!!

MosquitoAlert

This year is proving to be a difficult year for mosquitos all throughout the County.

Many considered 2012 to be the worse year historically for mosquito-borne diseases. Unfortunately in Chester County and Pennsylvania 2018 is fast approaching and, in some cases, already surpassed the numbers the County saw in 2012!

The Chester County Health Department (CCHD) has a Mosquito-Borne Diseases program which involves education, surveillance and control efforts. A critical element of the CCHD's surveillance includes collecting mosquito samples using traps that aid in monitoring the mosquito population’s rate of infection diseases such as West Nile Virus (WNV) which is spread to humans through mosquito bites. 

Information on preventing mosquitos from breeding on your property and protecting yourself from mosquito bites can be found on the CCHD 'Make You and Your Home a Bite Free Zone' page http://chesco.org/3624/Mosquito-Borne-Diseases.
