Introduction to Mosquito Surveillance

Mosquito Surveillance can be used to monitor mosquito populations and track the location of positive vector-borne disease test results.

Routine monitoring of larval and adult mosquito populations is critical to a successful mosquito control program. When data is tracked and compared over time, agencies can use this knowledge to predict recurring problem areas, times of year, and the potential of increased risk of vector-borne diseases. When vector-borne disease cases do arise, health and human services agencies must communicate information in a timely and effective manner with the public and mosquito control agencies. Mosquito control agencies can then use this information to plan adulticide spray operations that prevent the spread of vector-borne diseases. Mosquito Surveillance is typically implemented by public works, health and human services and mosquito control agencies that want to use data to proactively plan spray areas and reduce the risk of vector-borne diseases.

The Mosquito Surveillance solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you record mosquito counts by species at surveillance sites, visualize trends over time, track where mosquitos, chickens, birds, or humans have tested positive for vector-borne diseases and share this information with internal and external stakeholders.
