Introduction to Mosquito Service Requests

Mosquito Service Requests can be used to solicit reports of mosquito activity and locations of potential breeding sites from the general public.

Mosquitos are a serious threat to public health, beyond just nuisance swarms and annoying bites. During peak times, the risk for the spread of diseases such as encephalitis, yellow fever, dengue, Zika, and malaria drastically increase. 24/7 access to responsible agencies ensures mosquito activity is reported sooner and responsible agencies address problem areas faster. This accelerated approach improves the quality of life in a community and reduces risks associated with large infestations of mosquitoes. Mosquito Service Requests is typically implemented by public works and mosquito control agencies that want to take a data-driven approach to the control of mosquito populations.

The Mosquito Service Requests solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you solicit mosquito activity reports from the public, triage reports to staff and field crews for resolution and monitor the resolution of reports in a community.
