A second mosquito carrying West Nile Virus was found Friday in South Whitehall, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
It was the second mosquito found with the virus in two days in the township, according to the department's West Nile Virus Program.
Thirty-six mosquitos carrying the virus were found Friday in municipalities across Pennsylvania, including Upper Macungie and Bethlehem, the department said.
Three men in Pennsylvania have been sickened by the virus this summer, the department said. One patient from Montgomery County had been hospitalized.
Lehigh and Northampton counties have both been designated as "hot zones" for West Nile this summer by the state.
The virus has been detected in mosquitoes in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and Lower Macungie, Upper Macungie, Salisbury, South Whitehall and North Whitehall townships. Crews sprayed to reduce the mosquito population last week in North Whitehall.
