How do people get La Crosse encephalitis?
La Crosse is transmitted by infected mosquitoes that bite you. La Crosse virus can not be spread from person-to-person. The virus is mostly found in woodland habitats, between the treehole mosquito (Aedes triseriatus) and vertebrate hosts (such as chipmunks and squirrels).
