West Nile Virus
The Montgomery County Health Department is committed to protecting the residents of Montgomery County from the spread of West Nile Virus (WNV).
Mosquito Surveillance Surveillance of both immature and adult mosquitoes is an essential part of the Montgomery County Health Department's Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) approach.
