What Cities Infested by Mosquitoes in the USA?

Common mosquitoes in the USA, credit to healthgenie.in

I thought tropical countries have mosquitoes only, and have many diseases relate to mosquitoes. I was surprising to watch mosquitoes flew around when I moved in to my current house about six years ago.

I then understand that mosquitoes be found in the American southern states such as Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

Lately, I read from several resources that Mosquitoes infested almost all states of America.

Top 10 cities infested by mosquitoes are following (Bolluyt, 2018):
01) St. Louis, Missouri
02) Houston, Texas
03) Miami – Fort Lauderdal
04) Kansas City, Missouri
05) Charlotte, North Carolina
06) Detroit, Michigan
07) Memphis, Tennessee
08) Nashville, Tennessee
09) Tampa, Florida
10) Raleigh – Durham, North Carolina

There are three most common genera of mosquitoes in the USA are:
- Aedes.
Known for spreading the dengue fever, chikungunya and Zika.

- Anopheles.
Spreading the diseases called malaria.

- Culex.
This mosquito transmits disease called Japanese encephalitis virus and West Nile virus.


There were 2100 cases of “West Nile virus” in the USA in 2016. The highest cases compared to other mosquitoes borne diseases.

Since 1999 until recently, more than 3 million people affected by West Nile virus. Two thousand people have died in the USA.

The number is quite frightening for me, especially it is happening in the advance country like America.

Are there mosquitoes borne diseases in your countries? If so, what kinds of species?

  1. Mosquitoes are horrible. They were bad where we used to live in the north but they are not bad where we are in the south. I think there are a lot of insect eating wildlife here that are keeping the population down.

  3. In Indonesia, the malaria epidemic is still an annual scary disease.

    Hopefully the government where you live immediately takes action to eradicate dengue fever.

  6. Thanks so much for sharing with us this interesting article Tanza !!
    I hate mosquitoes !! In Spain there are many and very annoying, especially in summer, and the worst thing is to know they transmit diseases that can be deadly. Hope we could find a solution soon to get rid of them.
    I wish you a very nice day,
    Big hugs, Caty

  7. We've gotten a lot better here. I remember visiting my sister-in-law and literally running away from the backyard as hundreds of mosquitoes bore down on me.

  13. My heavens here in the states, my state Va. the mosquitos will eat us up at times. Some years are worse than others. My sister who lives in Maine has some large ones they joke are the state bird. We make sure there are no open containers that can collect rain and now this year we have had this spraying done to keep them at a lower level at least. The ticks here can be very bad also as the deer roams into our yard in the far back on occasion too. We have the yard treated also. Have to do it as they are really bad at certain times of the year.
    I get this spray that is lavender, mint and I forget the other oil but it does help a lot when I spray it on me and the grand children, and it's all natural.

  14. Fortunately, in Pl there are no such mosquitoes that spread this type of disease.
    The ticks are a nuisance here.
    Fortunately, all of this disease can (and even must, in my opinion) be vaccinated
    I think it's worth it because these diseases are very dangerous

  15. Mosquitoes freak me out because of the diseases they carry! We don't get much here during winter but in the summer, they're horrible...although not as bad as what you guys have in the south.
