How do we know that arboviruses are in the area and that people might become infected?

SLE, EEE and WNV pass back and forth between birds and mosquitoes. Mosquito control agencies located throughout the state monitor mosquito populations. When the virus is detected, mosquito control activities are increased-press releases and public education activities are issued to increase awareness of personal protective measures.
