It is called Mosquito Alert and is a free application for smartphones, through which every citizen can send reports and photographs of mosquitoes, thus allowing to trace the spread of mosquitoes in Europe and to counter the spread of viral diseases transmitted by these vector insects.

 

Behind the app there is an international research network coordinated for Italy by La Sapienza University of Rome, in which the Parasitology, Mycology and Health Entomology Laboratory of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe) also participates.

 

The researchers of the IZSVe will in fact be part of the team of international experts that will deal with the recognition of mosquito species, starting from the photos taken by citizens and sent with the app.

 

Furthermore, through the app, it is possible to report the bites received and the potential breeding sites of mosquitoes
