Middlebury Area at Moderate Risk for EEE Activity
Insects such as mosquitos and ticks can transmit illness. The Vermont Department of Health recently identified the greater Middlebury area as a region at moderate risk for the transmission of Easter Equine Encephalitis (EEE), which is transmitted by mosquitos. While illness from EEE in humans is rare, it can be severe; therefore, personal protection measures are advised. Deer ticks in Vermont can transmit Lyme disease.
