Tires provide excellent habitat for mosquitoes, particularly the Asian Tiger Mosquito, a potential vector of Zika Virus. Tires may also provide a habitat for a number of other mosquitoes species that may be a nuisance or spread other diseases, cuch as West Nile Virus. In response to this potential hazard the Lancaster County West Nile Virus Program is conducting a one-day tire collection to promote mosquito habitat removal. Details below.
