Mosquito Alert Android is a citizen science initiative to research and control disease-carrying mosquitoes. This project involves citizens and public health scientists and environmental managers to fight against the tiger mosquito, the yellow fever mosquito (which transmits diseases such as Zika, dengue, and chikungunya) and others.

Therefore, Mosquito Alert APK brings public management closer to citizens to join efforts and control the spread of mosquitoes. In turn, this serves to prevent bites and related diseases.

Notifies mosquito bites and breeding areas

Let's see how it works. Download Mosquito Alert for free and anyone can submit mosquito observations, breeding site locations, and bite alerts. The information received is validated by a team of international entomologists and then published on a public map that has been collecting data since 2014. Users receive points through a system that gamifies their efforts.

The function of the sting report is very detailed. First, you must enter the number of bites and point out in a drawing the areas of the body where you have been bitten by mosquitoes. Finally, you must answer some questions about the bite.

Citizen science to investigate and control disease-carrying mosquitoes.

In short, this citizen participation app allows anyone to provide valuable information that scientists use to analyze mosquito ecology and disease transmission. In addition, it also serves to monitor and fight the spread of mosquitoes.
