The Buzz on Wisconsin Mosquitoes

There are more than 60 species of mosquitoes in Wisconsin and a few can make life miserable. Mosquitoes are not just nuisances — some species can transmit “bugs” that cause diseases like dog heartworm, West Nile or La Crosse encephalitis. Dr. Susan Paskewitz, Professor of Entomology at UW-Madison, will introduce some of the unique aspects of mosquito biology and provide an update on new species like the Asian tiger mosquito, which have recently appeared in the state. Learn about ways to control mosquitoes, with examples from community programs in Wisconsin and learn about the many ways individuals try to prevent mosquito bites and the evidence for what works and what doesn’t.
