Wolbachia levels continue to rise

With the continued support of householders on Tri Nguyen Island the first field trial of our Wolbachia method to control dengue in Vietnam is progressing well. Our monitoring tells us that 70% of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes on the island now have the dengue-blocking bacterium.

Wolbachia mosquitoes will be released weekly until early September. After this we will continue with our monitoring to see how well Wolbachia maintains in the mosquito population.

By plane, truck, boat, trolley and foot … see how we get Wolbachia mosquitoes from the lab in Hanoi to households on Tri Nguyen Island.
