#1 NUISANCE
MOSQUITO IN VA

 

Each mosquito species listed has been documented in Virginia.  Highlighted species have not been observed since 1998 when the last official paper documented the mosquito fauna of Virginia (Harrison et. al.).  As of 2008, all other species had been identified in Virginia.

Additional species information is available for some of the more common mosquitoes in Virginia (click on link below).  All photographs were taken by Jason Williams (during his time with Chesapeake Mosquito Control), unless otherwise specified, and plates and some of the additional species information is from Mosquitoes of North America (Stanley Carpenter and Walter LaCasse).
