National Pest Alert - West Nile Virus in North America

This educational resource is no longer available.

West Nile encephalitis, a mosquito-transmitted disease, was first documented in North America during the summer of 1999, when an outbreak occurred in New York City. Since that time, cases of West Nile virus (WNV) infection have been confirmed in northeastern, north central, southern, and western regions of the United States, and the virus is expected to spread throughout North America.

This two-page handout on West Nile Virus describes virus transmission, the mosquito vector life-cycle, and steps you can take to reduce mosquito habitat near your home and prevent mosquito bites.

Previously known as EDC 277.
