Scholte, E J; Den Hartog, W; Dik, M; Schoelitsz, B; Brooks, M; Schaffner, F; Foussadier, R; Braks, M; Beeuwkes, J (2010). Introduction and control of three invasive mosquito species in the Netherlands, July-October 2010. Eurosurveillance, 15(45):19710.



In July 2010, during routine mosquito surveillance
inspections at companies that import used tires,
three invasive species were found at five locations
in the Netherlands: the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes
aegypti), the Asian tiger mosquito (Ae. albopictus),
and the American rock-pool mosquito (Ae. atropalpus).
This is the first time that Ae. aegypti is reported from
the Netherlands. Mosquito control was initiated one
week after the first invasive mosquito was found,
using adulticides and larvicides. The available data
suggest that the implemented control measures have
been effective for this season.
