PCGHD Mosquito Program: Mosquitoes can be found around many households, campgrounds, and parks in Ohio. It is common for humans to come in contact with mosquitoes in the spring, summer, and early fall in Ohio when going outdoors. There are 59 species of mosquitoes in Ohio. Some of these mosquitoes are known to spread disease. Although rare, mosquitoes can spread diseases such as west nile virus, encephalitis and malaria if an infected mosquito bites a human. Dogs can also get heartworms from bites from infected mosquitoes.
