UCD and WIT researchers received funding from the Department of Food, Agriculture and the Marine (DAFM) to investigate the current distribution of biting midges, mosquitoes and vector-borne pathogens (VBPs) in Ireland. The project which will be carried out in collaboration with academics, public service representatives and community groups, also aims to consolidate and enhance national expertise and awareness of fly vectors. The research team hopes that this will help to improve Ireland’s preparedness for potential future incursions of exotic vectors and VBPs
