Invasive mosquito spp. - current known surveillance: September 2017

The surveillance activities include not only specific surveillance studies but also work done as part of on-going control activities, research projects and inventory studies.

ECDC and EFSA, through the VectorNet network, continues to improve the data collection for the maps. VectorNet is looking for vector-borne disease experts who are interested in sharing data on the distribution of mosquito, tick, sand fly and culicoides vectors. Experts can contact VectorNet at VectorNet@ecdc.europa.eu to join the network. They can also register and upload data to the common database through the VectorNet tool.
