Mosquito surveillance is based on a transect trap line that runs from Calabash to Belville. View the Current Weekly Mosquito Activity page in your area and select Calabash, Bolivia or Belville. Because mosquito populations are dictated by weather conditions, we also maintain a weather database. We monitor the four National Weather Stations that surround the county. Data is collected daily and translated to weekly, monthly and annual formats. The weather data is reconciled using a weekly format to be overlaid onto our mosquito data. We are in the process of developing a long-term historical database of the mosquito species in Brunswick County.
Our goal is to provide our data set to the municipal mosquito programs in the county. Brunswick County currently has 13 mosquito programs, the county program and 12 municipal programs.
