The 107 mosquito samples from 27 traps set on Sept. 11 have tested negative for both West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) announced today.

 

Results from traps set Sept. 17 will be reported next week.

 

To date, in Rhode Island, 10 mosquito samples from seven communities (Central Falls, Cranston, Pawtucket, Providence, South Kingstown, Tiverton and Warren) have tested positive for WNV, and four mosquito samples have tested positive for EEE. Connecticut and Massachusetts continue to report positive findings of WNV in mosquito samples. Positive findings of WNV in Southern New England have been higher this year than recent years.

 

 

“With temperatures starting to cool, mosquito numbers are naturally dwindling,” said Alan Gettman, state Mosquito Abatement Coordinator. “Because the first hard frost doesn’t usually occur until October, however, the risk of being bitten remains high. We think it’s prudent for Rhode Islanders to continue to use caution to reduce mosquito bites until then.”

 

Personal protection is the first line of defense against mosquitoes that may carry WNV, EEE, or other diseases – and the most effective way to avoid infection.

 

With WNV and EEE established throughout the state, DEM and the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) remind the public to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and prevent being bitten, whenever possible.
