Zika Virus Prevention in Virginia
Posted on Apr 18th, 2016 Comments (0)
Information on Mosquitoes.
 
Mosquitoes and Zika infection in Virginia:
 
•People in Virginia can acquire Zika through the bite of an infected mosquito, during travel to an area where the virus is circulating among mosquitoes.
•The infection is transmitted primarily by mosquitoes. It is most commonly transmitted by the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegyptii), but the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) can also transmit it.
•Both of these mosquito species circulate in Virginia, with Asian tiger mosquitoes being the most common nuisance mosquito here. Therefore, there is a risk of Zika virus being imported into Virginia and being transmitted by local mosquitoes during mosquito season. At this time of year neither of these two mosquito species are active, so infection by mosquito bite is not possible.
 
Mosquito control in Virginia:
•When the mosquito season begins in May, there is potential for our local Yellow fever mosquitoes and Asian tiger mosquitoes to become infected with the Zika virus by biting infected persons who have returned from areas of Zika activity.
•These two mosquito species are different from most other mosquito species in Virginia because they fly and bite during daylight hours and will enter homes through any open door or window and bite indoors. These two species are also different from other species because they lay their eggs exclusively in containers of water (i.e. containers made of plastic, ceramic, glass, metal, concrete, wood or stone) and they do not lay their eggs in “ground” bodies of water such as puddles, flooded ditches, ponds or streams.
•Control and prevention for these two mosquito species requires tactics that are different than what is normally used for other mosquito species. For example, the treating neighborhoods with truck-mounted foggers and larviciding puddles and stagnant water in ditches, swamps, or streams will not control either of these two mosquito species. Mosquito control and prevention requires:
•Thorough inspection of residential and commercial properties to find and eliminate, dump, or treat the containers of water that these mosquito species lay their eggs in. Effective treatment of a neighborhood often requires a property to property effort.
•Spraying of aerosol fogs into the foliage of shrubs, hedges, ivy and other vegetation or structures where these mosquitoes sit.
•Spraying of residual insecticide barriers on the foliage of shrubs, hedges, ivy, other low vegetation or walls on properties where these mosquitoes are abundant.
•Maintaining screens on all home/building windows and doors to prevent the entry of these mosquitoes into the home.
 
Guidance on mosquito control measures can be found in the following CDC document:
Interim CDC Recommendations for Zika Vector Control in the Continental United States
 
See CDC’s Division of Vector-borne diseases website for more information on mosquito-borne illnesses.
 
See the Virginia Mosquito Control Association’s website for information about statewide mosquito control efforts.

New Flashing Crosswalk Beacon
Posted on Nov 16th, 2015 Comments (0)
In response to Virginia Run community concerns about the pedestrian crosswalk at Pleasant Valley Road and Wetherburn Drive, Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County worked together with Delegate Tim Hugo and Supervisor Michael Frey to secure funding to construct a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) at this location.  Construction has been completed and the flashers will be activated soon.
 
Federal Highway Administration research has shown that Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons enhance safety at unsignalized intersections and mid-block pedestrian crossings by increasing driver awareness of potential pedestrian conflicts.  They use an irregular flash pattern that is similar to emergency flashers on police vehicles.  The novelty and unique nature of the stutter flash elicits a greater response from drivers than traditional methods, increasing driver yielding behavior significantly.
 
However, it is important for pedestrians to understand that they have to push a button to actuate the flashers, and that they still have to watch for vehicles before stepping off the curb.  The flashing beacons do not compel drivers to stop like a red light would, they only advise them that pedestrians are present and wish to cross.
 
Additional information about RRFBs can be found on the FHWA website using the following link:
