Zika is here to stay in the Americas, but it has not yet taken hold in Pennsylvania. Around 160 Zika imported travel cases were identified in PA last year. After returning home from vacation in Zika infested areas, help prevent introduction of the virus into local mosquitoes by wearing bug spray and avoiding bites. Working together to keep mosquito populations low will be essential in our efforts to thwart this disease. The Asian Tiger Mosquito likes to lay eggs in old tires, tarps, or even a bottle cap full of water. If you can’t dump standing water, treat it with a BTI bacteria based product, such as Mosquito Dunks, found at local hardware stores. Please visit our website to learn more about mosquitoes, our program, and how to sign up for “Notify Me” emails.
