Naturally Speaking: Mosquitoes, the Zika Virus, and Virginia: An Update

Date(s) - 03/21/2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Speaker:  Betsy Hodson, York County Mosquito Control Biologist

As of October 20, there were 87 confirmed cases of people infected with the Zika virus in Virginia, and all cases are classified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as  “travel-related”.  But with 137 “locally acquired” cases in Florida, what could the future hold for other parts of the U.S., including Virginia?

Mosquito Biologist Betsy Hodson will help us better understand mosquitoes’ roles as carriers and transmitters of the virus, as well as the current state of research and “on the ground” activities that are connected to controlling this recent threat to human health.  Please join us for this informative evening, and bring your questions!
