Since DEP first began monitoring for the virus in 2000, there have been 33 fatal cases of West Nile virus in Pennsylvania.

Six human cases of West Nile have been reported so far this year in Louisiana.

The West Nile virus was detected in 17 zip codes, according to most recent data. Birds, horses and humans can get infected through a single bite.

The mosquitoes that can spread WNV are called Culex quinquefasciatus or the "Southern House" mosquito and can grow to adults in as few as 7 days. Remove trash and clutter, including discarded waste tires, buckets, tarps and any other items that could collect water.

Drain any water that collects around your home. Make sure swimming pools and fountains are operational and circulating.

∫ Limit outside activity during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Symptoms of West Nile Virus include fever, headache, rash, muscle aches and fatigue. The Agency of Agriculture identifies locations, sets up the traps and takes samples, and the Department of Health conducts the testing and prepares the prevention awareness programs.
