Mosquitoes are important vectors that carry pathogens such as protozoa, viruses, and filarial parasites through bloodsucking. Mosquitoes are also dangerous medical insect pests that transmit malaria, Japanese encephalitis, West Age fever, and dengue fever to humans. In this study, a smart high-altitude insect net installed in Goseong-gun was applied for monitoring mosquitoes which can invaded into Korea from 2022 to 2023. A total of 53 individuals of 5 species belonging into 3 genera were collected during two years by using the high-altitude insect net. Among the 5 species, Anopheles belenrae which can transmit vivax malaria was firstly collected in Gyeongsangnam-do. This study is the first attempt to establish a monitoring network for mosquitoes which can invaded into Korea, and it was confirmed that mosquitoes can be monitored by using the smart airborne net trap.
