Can someone please explain to me why States like Colorado and Nebraska
have many West Nile Virus cases while states like Florida and Georgia have
very few.  This doesn't seem to fit with the idea that this is a
mosquito-borne virus.  Colorado hardly has any mosquitos compared with
Florida.  Am I missing something?
