Theia Risks associated with infectious diseases SEC has developed a software to simulate the population dynamics of the tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus for Reunion Island.
Using the life cycle of the mosquito, as well as environmental and meteorological data, the tool simulates estimates of mosquito densities at different stages of development (eggs, larvae, adults), on a neighbourhood scale.
