How can I identify tiger mosquitoes and what can I do against them?
published on 30. May 2022
What do tiger mosquitoes look like?
Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) are relatively small and have a black body with clearly visible white stripes (Figure 1 A, B, C).
But be careful, not every dark mosquito with stripes is a tiger mosquito! In Central Europe, for example, the banded mosquito (Culiseta annulata) is present in very many residential areas. It is dark brown and has conspicuously striped legs and abdomen, and there are spots on its wings (Figure 1 D). The Asian tiger mosquito is not dark but distinctly black in color, with a silvery-white line running down the middle of the head and thorax. Furthermore, the tiger mosquito is smaller than the banded mosquito.Read more »

HNU monitors the spread of disease-transmitting mosquitoes supported by Biogents mosquito traps

Remote Sensing and On-Site Characterization of Wetlands as Potential Habitats for Malaria Vectors
Insect-borne diseases are an ongoing threat to public health. Among other common known diseases, malaria is still a worldwide health problem and also of relevance in colder regions. The spread of this disease is currently supported by the increase of wetland areas, environmental change, warming, a decrease of pesticide use and an overall mosquito import via travel. That’s why HNU’s DigiHealth Institute and Biogents combine natural and health science methods to identify potential future mosquito risk areas in the new research project "Swammp" (Swabian Mosquito Monitoring Project).Read more »
