Zika virus is a mosquito-borne disease that causes severe nervous system damage in babies and, as we are quickly finding out, adults. Mosquitos get Zika by biting an infected person, but can mosquitos get Zika from other mosquitos? Many mosquito-borne diseases can be passed from a mother mosquito to her eggs. If this is true of Zika, the virus could become permanently established in all the new countries it has spread to, circulating in the mosquito populations even when there is no one sick to bite. I will discuss my research on this hidden transmission cycle, what it means for Southern Arizona, and preventative measures you can take to avoid the disease.
