Mosquito Monday Photo Challenge Update

The GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Photo Challenge kicked off Sunday, July 25, and by Friday, August 6 we now have over 3,400 new photos of mosquito larvae, water habitats, and land cover.  Thanks for all the great observations and photos so far! Read these weekly updates during the challenge online in the GLOBE Observer News section.

Mosquito larva…or imposter?

Use the Mosquito Larva Hunters Level 1 Training to sharpen those observation skills. Put this sample through the “bug-shot” lineup to determine whether it is a mosquito larva or an imposter!
