    The prevention or reduction of chikungunya virus (CHIKV) transmission is completely dependent on the control of mosquito vectors and limiting human-vector contact. Several different mosquito species are involved in the transmission of CHIKV in Africa (Jupp and McIntosh 1988) and in the islands of the western Pacific Ocean (Savage et al. 2015). However, the principal epidemic vectors for CHIKV worldwide are Ae. aegypti (Jupp and McIntosh 1988) and Ae. albopictus (Hawley 1988) and the CDC recommendations for the surveillance and control of CHIKV in the United States specifically target these two species.

    The primary objective of this document is to provide guidance for mosquito-based surveillance, prevention and response to CHIKV in the United States. This document is intended for state and local public health officials and vector control specialists.
