York County Mosquito Control
York County Mosquito Control Division routinely samples mosquitoes collected throughout the County and tests for common mosquito-borne illnesses. Mosquito Control also conducts a comprehensive larvacide and spray program during the season that mosquitoes are most active, from late spring to early fall. One mosquito pool recently collected in Lower York County has tested positive for West Nile Virus.
At this time, there are no reported cases of West Nile Virus in humans or animals in York County that the County is aware of. The County plans to continue testing and spraying efforts. Mosquito Control recommends the use of insect repellent and long sleeves/pants to cover exposed skin.
Ground spraying is scheduled for the following areas on Saturday August 10, 2019 between 1:00 a.m. - 4:00 a.m.:
Coventry Drive, Byrd Lane, Cain Terrace, Churchill Estates, Commonwealth Green, Coventry, Davis Forge, Faison Green, Ferguson Glade, Finch Terrace, Gables Of York, Hawks Landing, Justinian Grove, Lilburne Meadow, Patriot Village, Presson Arbor, Shady Banks, Shady Banks Farm, Sherwood Forest, Smithy Glen, Tabb Lakes, The Greenlands, Villas On Shady Banks, Whispering Winds, York Manor, York Meadows, Yorkshire Downs
