Designated and Declared Pests

Mosquito (Culex tarsalis)

Trapped mosquitoes are brought to the FCWP lab in Riverton where they are counted and separated by species. All Culex are tested for West Nile virus. The testing monitors when West Nile virus is most active in the mosquito population. The data may also aid researchers in tracking trends or forming prediction models.

About Zika

The two species of mosquitoes that can carry and transmit Zika virus, Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, have never been detected in Wyoming so it is highly unlikely someone would contract Zika virus from a mosquito bite in our state.
