Mosquitoes are vectors of major pathogen agents worldwide. Mapping their distribution can contribute effectively to disease surveillance and control systems. In this study, we used remote sensing data as the input in a weather-driven model of mosquito population dynamics applied to Rift Valley fever vector species in northern Senegal. The model predictions were consistent with field entomological data on mosquito adult abundances. Based on satellite-derived rainfall and temperature data, dynamic maps of three potential Rift Valley fever vector species, Aedes vexans, Culex poicilipes, and Culex tritaeniorhynchus, were then produced at a regional scale on a weekly basis. When direct weather measurements are sparse, these maps can be used to support policymakers in optimizing surveillance and control interventions of Rift Valley fever in Senegal. View this paper.
