The Mosquito Recording Scheme aims to better understand the distribution and ecology of mosquitoes in Britain.
The scheme is co-ordinated by the Medical Entomology and Zoonoses Ecology Group (MEZE) at the Health Protection Agency.
This project aims to collate and enhance existing data on the distribution of all British mosquitoes in order to fill the gaps in our current understanding of mosquito distributions and to encourage the sharing of up-to-date distribution data. This will improve our understanding of the public health risk posed by mosquitoes and mosquito-borne infections. At the current time, the mosquito recording scheme does not test mosquitoes for any pathogens they may carry.
Individuals and groups are invited to assist in the development of the database on mosquito distributions by sending in any mosquitoes collected, along with details of:
