Mosquitos are abound!

The Chester County Health Department has a Mosquito-Borne Diseases program which involves education, surveillance and control efforts. A critical element of their 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) and Zika which is spread to people by mosquito bites.

Mosquito bites can cause illness.  Make you and your home a Bite-Free Zone to reduce your risk of mosquito bites and mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile virus and Zika virus.
