Report sites where mosquitoes like to breed such as stagnant water, trash containers, abandoned pools or fountains, discarded tires, tree holes, areas of industrial or commercial debris. The app will automatically upload a GIS-tagged photo to a global map that will alert local public health officials to the problem. This will help epidemiologists and public health agencies make better decisions.
Fewer mosquitoes means fewer infectious diseases like Zika, dengue, chikungunya, malaria, West Nile virus, and yellow fever. Every year millions of people are infected worldwide; hundreds die. Helping stop vector-borne diseases by reporting potential breeding sites also helps the environment by minimizing the need for blanket spraying.
