****West Nile Virus Information (09/10/18)****

                Protect Yourself from West Nile virus 


Continue to wear insect repellent when outdoors, mosquitoes infected with West Nile virus remain active despite the cooling weather. Twelve (12) new samples of mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile virus this week.  These positive mosquito samples were collected from Allamuchy Township, Hackettstown, Hope Township, Liberty Township, and Washington Township.  The mosquitoes were collected between 8/28/18 & 8/30/18, and sent to the NJ Public Health and Environmental Lab in Trenton on Tuesday, 9/4/18.  Results were received Friday 9/7/18.


So far this year, a total of forty-five (45) samples of mosquitoes have tested positive in Warren County from: Allamuchy (2), Alpha (1), Belvidere (2), Franklin (5), Greenwich (1), Hackettstown (12), Harmony (4), Hope (2), Liberty (2),  Lopatcong (1), Oxford (3), Phillipsburg (4), and Washington Borough (1), Washington Township (4), and White (1).  The average number of positive mosquito samples in Warren County is between 8 and 9 per year.  Mid to late August is peak time for humans and other mammals to acquire this virus.  There are 9 confirmed human case in NJ currently and several more are pending. 


Treatments to reduce adult mosquito populations are ongoing throughout the County as weather and notifications allow.   Please check the Commission’s website www.warrencountymosquito.org daily for more information or call our office at (908) 453-3585

PROTECT YOURSELF!!!!!     Residents are urged to help reduce their risk of contracting mosquito-borne diseases by following these guidelines: 


  • Don't produce mosquitoes on your property. Dump or drain standing water. Mosquitoes can't begin their life without water.
  • Defend yourself against mosquitoes using repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus.
  • Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are present, typically Dawn and Dusk.
  • Report neglected swimming pools by calling 908-453-3585 or visiting www.warrencountymosquito.org  Anonymous calls accepted. Just one neglected pool can produce more than 1 million mosquitoes and affect people up to five miles away.  

West Nile virus symptoms of the mild form include fever, headache, tiredness, body aches, and swollen lymph glands. While the illness can be as short as a few days, even healthy people have reported being sick for several weeks. 


Less than one percent of individuals (about 1 in 150 people) infected with West Nile virus will develop severe illness. The severe symptoms can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. These symptoms may last several weeks, and neurological effects may be permanent. West Nile virus infection can be fatal.
