Potential Abundance of Disease-Carrying Mosquito
This figure appears in chapter 19 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
The map shows current suitability for the Aedes aegypti mosquito in July in 50 different cities. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes can spread several important diseases, including dengue fever, chikungunya, and Zika fever. The Southeast is the region of the country with the greatest potential mosquito activity. Warming temperatures have the potential to expand mosquito habitat and disease risk.
