LATEST NEWS  

The Beaver County West Nile Virus vector-borne disease control program has started surveillance for the 2022 season. Larval control began in April and approximately 38 sites have been treated with various means of larvicides (such as Fourstar, Altosid, etc.) to help prohibit adult mosquitoes from emerging.

Surveillance began May 1st and we have deployed traps at approximately 19 sites and have collected approximately 1,000 adult mosquitoes. Test results confirm there are no positive results for West Nile in Beaver County at this time.

Surveillance will continue throughout the season until October of this year.

To help protect against West Nile Virus and mosquitoes, remember to Dump It! Drain It! Treat It! Dump any containers that hold stagnant water like old tires, kiddie pools, and buckets. Drain any containers that may hold water for longer periods of time. Areas that can’t be dumped or drained can be treated with Bti products like mosquito dunks that can be purchased at home improvement, and garden retail stores.

Any questions related to West Nile Virus or mosquito concerns, please contact us at the Beaver County Conservation District 724-378-1701 ext. 222

Pennsylvania Landowners Guide to Utility-Scale Solar Leasing

This guide is intended to inform landowners on terminology, background information, and considerations to make when approached to lease their land for utility-scale solar.

The Beaver County Conservation District held a spring tire collection event on April 1st and April 2nd at the district office. We accepted light truck and car tires up to 20” off rim at a cost of $2.50 per tire. This discounted price was possible through the West Nile Virus Grant for education and habitat reduction. We collected over 1,000 tires during the 2-day event.
