This photograph depicts what turned out to be a fruitful location for the acquisition of Culex pipiens mosquitoes. This culvert acted as a stagnant water collection site in which mosquitoes could breed, and lay their eggs, which would later hatch, giving rise to many, many new population members, able to spread possible arboviral diseases. The C. pipiens mosquito is a known vector for the West Nile virus (WNV).
