Mosquito surveillance is conducted each year from June through September. Mosquitoes are collected from established sites and are sent to Wadsworth Laboratory in Albany for arbovirus testing. Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus pose the greatest threat to humans and mammals in the Central New York region.
