Did you know that spare tires are prime mosquito breeding sites? Between March and June, citizen scientists use the Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool in the GLOBE Observer app to report the location of spare tires. Participants will document the mosquito tire habitat by submitting a photo using the Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool within the app and follow up with the Land Cover tool to provide photos of the tire location.
You are also invited to attend the March GLOBE Mission Mosquito Webinar, where you can learn more details about this year’s Spare Tire Blitz. And who knows? If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, you might just find the first spring hatches of larvae in your area! Join the free webinar on 10 March.
