In the United States and Wisconsin, mosquitoes can spread West Nile virus (WNV), La Crosse encephalitis, and Powassan virus infections. These infections generally occur during the warm-weather months when mosquitoes are active. Symptoms of illness are usually mild and nonspecific, and can include headache, fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and swollen lymph nodes. Some people may experience severe illness and require hospitalization.
