From 2002 to 2017, we used these techniques to determine how environmental conditions and surveillance practices are related to the presence of West Nile virus in mosquito traps across Ontario, Canada. We found that urban land cover and warm temperatures fueled viral growth, while viral testing on ponds with higher numbers of Culex mosquitoes was more likely to result in a positive test for West Nile virus. Models with time-varying occupancy effects had much lower Watanabe-Akaike information requirements than models without such effects.
