A network diagram of mosquito vectors (circles) and their flavivirus pairs (rectangles).

The Culex mosquitoes (light blue) and primarily encephalitic viruses (blue) are more clustered than the Aedes (orange) and hemmorhagic viruses (red). Notably, West Nile Virus is vectored by both Aedes and Culex species. Predicted vectors of Zika are shown by bolded links in black. The inset shows predicted vectors of Zika and species names, ordered by the model’s propensity scores. Included flaviviruses are Banzi virus (BANV), Bouboui virus (BOUV), dengue virus strains 1, 2, 3 and 4 (DENV-1,2,3,4), Edge Hill virus (EHV), Ilheus virus (ILHV), Israel turkey meningoencephalomyelitis virus (ITV), Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), Kedougou virus (KEDV), Kokobera virus (KOKV), Kunjin virus (KUNV), Murray Valley encephalitis virus (MVEV), Rocio virus (ROCV), St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV), Spondwendi virus (SPOV), Stratford virus (STRV), Uganda S virus (UGSV), Wesselsbron virus (WESSV), West Nile Virus (WNV), yellow fever virus (YFV), and Zika virus (ZIKV).

Variable importance by permutation, averaged over 25 models.

Because some categorical variables were treated as binary by our model (i.e. continental range), the relative importance of each binary variable was summed to result in the overall importance of the categorical variable. Mosquito and virus traits are shown in blue and maroon, respectively. Error bars represent the standard error from 25 models.

Distribution maps of predicted vectors of Zika virus in the continental US.

Maps of Aedes species are based on Centers for disease control and prevention (2016). All other species’ distributions are georectified maps from Darsie and Ward (2005).

Dashed lines represent corresponding threshold values for each model based on lowest ranked known vector propensities.

Table 1

Predicted vectors of Zika virus, as reported by our model. Mosquito species endemic to the continental United States are bolded. A species is defined as a known vector of Zika virus if a full transmission cycle (see main text) has been observed.
