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 .

"Current location" setting for reporting is bugged. Everytime the app doesn't automatically show my location on the map and that's makes impossible to click on "continue". I even try to tap on "reset" and switch between "Current location" and "Select location" but it doesn't work. This issue makes me impossible (or really difficult and frustrating) to fill a report. [If this issue will be fixed, I will change my review in better] I use a Google Pixel 6 with latest updates available (Android 12)

Hello, thank you very much for your assessment and report of the problem, I would like to ask you if you can tell us what mobile model you have and the software installed, to see if we detect any type of incompatibility and be able to solve the problem. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to find a solution in the next updates.

Since the update I get a message in a foreign language (Spanish?) With an 'Agree' button, even though the language is set to English. I can't read it so I can't use the app anymore. Besides that, it also feels like my actions were fruitless, as my information is only sent out, and I never saw any report with worldwide tallies or results of any kind.

Looks like a proper app but does not work on my phone. Asks for movement and location access, and I did not grant those. First I want to see what it does before I grant accesses. But now it keeps on showing a loading circle forever. Uninstalling.
