Brief description of project: 
The Mosquito radar project aims to determine: 1) where in the Netherlands which mosquito species can be found; 2) the amount of nuisance mosquitoes cause; 3) the risks for health problems; and 4) ways to control mosquitoes and prevent health risks. We asks people to regularly report the amount of mosquito nuisance they experience. During fixed periods we also ask the public to send in dead mosquitoes for further analysis.
