Abstract of the Article
There are many concerns about the spread and establishment of exotic mosquito species in Europe,
some of which are highly competent to transmit pathogens. The fast spread of some invasive
mosquito species, e.g. the Asian bush mosquito, might be explained by a combination of natural
dispersal and human transport. Therefore, the aim of this study was the development of a software
tool that is capable to model the local spatial-temporal spread of invasive mosquitoes through
natural dispersal and their transportation through human transport via cars. The evaluation of the
tool shows that it is capable to simulate the spread but also reveals the need for more biological
data about invasive mosquito species.
