About this app

Join the world's largest mosquito surveillance network. Contribute to the study and monitoring of invasive mosquitoes and mosquitoes of epidemiological interest with the Mosquito Alert app. With it you will be able to report mosquito observations, mosquito breeding sites, and keep a record of mosquito bites.

By sharing your observations, you will be providing information that scientists can use in their research to better understand the ecology of mosquitoes, disease transmission, and provide data to improve their management.

Mosquito Alert is a citizen science project coordinated by several public research centers, CEAB-CSIC, UPF and CREAF, whose objective is to study, monitor and fight against the spread of disease-carrying mosquitoes.

What can you do with the app?

-Notify the presence of five species of mosquitoes:
(1) the tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus)
(2) the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti)
(3) the Asian bush mosquito (Aedes japonicus)
(4) Aedes koreicus
(5) the common house mosquito (Culex pipiens)

-Identify their breeding places in your area
-Notify when you receive a bite
-Validate the photos of other participants

A community of more than 50 international expert entomologists will validate the photos you send to the platform, thus being able to learn to identify the mosquito species of health interest. All observations are made public on the Mosquito Alert map website, where they can be viewed and downloaded, as well as exploring the models developed from the contributions of the participants.

Your contributions are very useful for science!

The Mosquito Alert app is available in more than 17 European languages: Spanish, Catalan, English, Albanian, German, Bulgarian, Croatian, Dutch, French, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Luxembourgish, Macedonian, Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian, Turkish .

Useful, but plagued by a software bug: when submitting multiple reports after some days of no activity, only the first one is acquired (irrespective of AI identifying all samples). This unavoidably biases data.

Doesn't work in Pixel 6 Pro. The app opens, request the permissions (without explaining the reason) and after granting the permissions it gets stuck in the home screen. None of the buttons work. To solve this I had to remove the background tracking permission and then the app started working.

Educational and useful for everyone (especially from a public health point of view), I really recommend to install it and to contribute. UPDATE: I've reduced my review from 5 stars to 3 because it's not clear when you can send a mosquito. I just discovered that I can send it for every report I made, but I didn't received any notification, I discovered it by chance looking into "My data" section. This should be definitely improved.
