  • Description:
    Mosquito-borne diseases are a constant public health concern in the United States. Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne virus spread to humans mainly through the bite of infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The related Ae. albopictus mosquito can support ZIKV transmission in laboratory studies, so far.1 Both mosquitoes inhabit a large portion of the U.S. West Nile Virus (WNV), another mosquito-borne virus, is spread through the bite of infected Culex species mosquitoes. Culex mosquitoes can be found throughout the U.S., and WNV cases have been reported in every state within the continental U.S. While local health departments and other local agencies are on the front lines of defense against ZIKV and WNV, almost no data exists on whether or not local agencies are prepared for a mosquito-borne virus outbreak. Without this information, federal and state efforts to support local response needs and address capacity gaps are significantly limited. The Mosquito Surveillance and Control assessment was sent to the 1,906 vector control organizations in the U.S., representing all organizations identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA), and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). This document was supported in part by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
