Cold Winter May Not Have Affected State’s Mosquitoes

April 24, 2014

State environmental officials have handed out more than two million dollars in grants to West Nile Virus programs.  That news may be a reminder to start thinking about the mosquitoes that carry the disease.

The Department of Environmental Protection says the winter’s Polar Vortex may not have had any effect on the mosquito population.  They can re-emerge with a few warm days and a little water in which to breed.

The DEP recommends checking for places that tend to collect water around your house and eliminating breeding spots like clogged gutters, bird baths, planters, recycling bins and pool covers.

It is hard to tell what this season might bring.  2012 was Pennsylvania’s worst year for West Nile Virus.  Last year was described by state officials as a “typical year.”
