Photo by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | A female western encephalitis mosquito stands at rest, engorged with blood, near Crosslake, Minnesota. It is a species of concern throughout much of the United States, especially west of the Mississippi River, where it acts as the primary vector for several forms of encephalitis and West Nile virus.
