Advancing the conservation, use, and appreciation of Connecticut’s wildlife resources.
ATTENTION Hunters, Anglers, and Hikers: Based on the latest information from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, it has been determined that, although the risk of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) transmission will not be eliminated until we experience a hard frost, the likelihood of human infection is extremely low. However, hunters, anglers, and hikers should continue to use personal protective measures, including the use of an EPA-approved insect repellent and wearing long sleeves and pants if a significant amount of time is spent outdoors. Continued surveillance updates of mosquito and virus activity, and precautionary and control methods can be found at
