Vector-Borne Diseases
Education, Public Health, and Management

Our world is becoming more accessible, allowing vectors and many of the diseases they carry to find new homes. The current spotlight on Zika virus has the public seeking to gain a better understanding of vector-borne diseases and what they can do to protect themselves as well as their community.

Within the United States, West Nile Virus (WNV), Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), chikungunya, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are seen most often. Infected arthropod species, such as mosquitoes and ticks, transmit vector-borne diseases to humans and animals by biting.

Various conditions can lead to the spread of vector-borne diseases and
predicting where and when these outbreaks will occur can be challenging. The best prevention is educating individuals on what public health efforts can be practiced to reduce vector populations in their community.
