6:16 am
the samples would be sent to the invasive mosquito project. it's an idea born from a u.s. department of agriculture scientist in the midwest who wants to create an updated map of mosquito activity in light of the zika virus and other life-threatening diseases that mosquitos carry. >> now we have this fear from zika, but really this is an education project for people, and it's for building dynamic maps. >> we want to be proactive. once you have the disease or those mosquitos in your area, it's already too late. >> reporter: so really now is the time to act. the scientist behind this project tells me in the past when he's put out this kind of plea, students have been more responsive and really more passionate about data collection than adults. so that's why school groups are being encouraged to take part. really, anyone can help out. you just need to contact your local mosquito control team. we have a lot more information on our website,, and a
