One of the main mosquitoes responsible for the transmission of several illnesses and diseases in Kentucky is the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus).
This mosquito is black with white bands on the legs and a white stripe along the middle of the thorax. This is an aggressive mosquito which, unlike many other mosquitoes, bites during the daytime. Several diseases are attributed to Aedes albopictus including; Zika virus, eastern equine encephalitis, dengue, La Crosse encephalitis, Yellow fever, West Nile virus, and dog heart-worm.
Aedes albopictus can be found breeding in places like abandoned vehicle tires and other types of "containers" which will hold water for extended periods of time. It is suggested that the improper storage of used tires may be the foremost source of dispersal in the United States.
Other mosquitoes known to be native to Kentucky are: Culex pipiens or the common house mosquito, Aedes triseriatus or the eastern tree hole mosquito, Anopheles quadrimaculatus and the inland floodwater mosquito known as Aedes vexans.
