Rize Recep Tayyip Erdogan University (RTEU) Faculty of Arts and Sciences Zoology Department Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Mustafa Akıner and his team started an investigation in 2015 on the mosquitoes collected from all over Turkey, especially the ‘aedes albopictus’ species, in a laboratory environment. Continuing the studies and examining the flies under observation, the team also deepened their studies on the ‘aedes albopictus’ type mosquitoes, whose spread is increasing especially in Istanbul. The team, which conducts research on the possible distribution areas, spread rate and control of harmful insect species that cause itching and wounds in environments where it is effective, has also developed projects supported by TUBITAK and the United Nations (UN).

In their research, the team found that the spread of the ‘aedes’ species extends from the Georgian border, from the Black Sea coast cities to Istanbul, to the Bulgarian border; It also detected the presence of spread in Yalova, Bursa, Balıkesir, İzmir, Aydın and Muğla.
