West Nile Virus
Current Mosquito Abundance in the Coachella Valley
The District uses two types of traps: CDC - CO2 baited traps, gravid traps, and sentinel chicken flocks which we set out in representative sites of all habitats in Coachella Valley. The map below displays the general locations of our weekly/bi-weekly traps, how many female mosquitoes were collected during the most recent cycle, and any sentinel chickens that tested positive for arboviruses (West Nile virus, Saint Louis encephalitis, and western equine encephalomyelitis).
As of April 2013, no reported cases of WNV in the Coachella Valley.
