Mosquito Borne Disease
West Nile Virus is a mosquito transmitted virus that occurs commonly across Wyoming. Reducing the spread of virus is a primary motivator for mosquito control efforts in the state. The very young, elderly and other immune compromised individuals are especially at risk. Symptoms can range from mild rash or fever to encephalitis or meningitis. More information on West Nile Virus can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website here.
