DEP to Spray Parts of Blair County for West Nile Virus
The State Department of Environmental Protection will spray several parts of Blair County to help control the spread of the West Nile Virus.
Ken Boston is the county’s West Nile Virus coordinator. He says the mosquitoes are bad this year – and more than 30 of the 1,300 samples taken locally have tested positive for the virus.
Boston says most of the positives have come from the Hollidaysburg-Duncansville area and the City of Altoona – and that’s where officials will focus their spraying and fog treatment efforts.
Emergency Management Director Dan Boyles says the mosquito population is bad this year because of the mild winter coupled with the very warm summer. You can keep mosquitoes from camping out at your home simply by removing all sources of standing water.
