All mosquitoes are found in the family Culicide. There are roughly 3,000 species, 150 of which live in North America. The species Culex quinquefasciatus, also called by the name, southern house mosquito, with a flight range of one mile, can vector the West Nile virus. A mosquito sample collected in Williamsom County Texas in November 2016, has tested positive for the West Nile virus.
