Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito

Known as a vector for the West Nile virus, this Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito has landed on a human finger.

The main transmitter of the West Nile virus in the southeast is the species C. quinquefasciatus. Eliminating puddles and small containers of water can greatly reduce this mosquito’s population.
