Abstract

In February 2003, a pool of 6 Culex pipiens mosquitoes collected in Lehigh County, PA, tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV). West Nile viral RNA was detected by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. This is the first time in Pennsylvania and the third time in North America that WNV has been found in overwintering adult mosquitoes.
