The first confirmed collection of Aedes japonicus in Maine was in Cumberland County in 2001. Since that initial collection, it has been found in 7 of Maine's 16 counties between 2001 and 2015. These collections include the northernmost collection of Ae. japonicus in the eastern USA, from Madawaska in Aroostook County. Though mosquito surveillance is limited in the state, it is evident that Ae. japonicus is more widely distributed in Maine than previously believed although its role in arboviral transmission in the region is unknown.
