Vector Surveillance & Control

The maps below show CDC’s best estimate of the potential range of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in the United States. These maps include areas where mosquitoes are or have been previously found. Shaded areas on the map do not necessarily mean that there are infected mosquitoes in that area. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are more likely to spread viruses like Zika, dengue, chikungunya and other viruses than other types of mosquitoes such as Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. More about the maps

Estimated range of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in the United States, 2016 Maps

	Two maps of the United States showing Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes are or have been previously found.  Aedes aegypti range is the southern half of the United States.  Aedes albopictus range is the eastern half of the United States as well as the southwest.

*Maps have been updated from a variety of sources. These maps represent CDC's best estimate of the potential range of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in the United States. Maps are not meant to represent risk for spread of disease.
