The European Society for Vector Ecology (E-SOVE) is a European branch of the American Society SOVE www.sove.org a nonprofit organization founded in California in 1968.

The aim of the E-SOVE is to share knowledge and create a large network among scientists on thematics concerning the ecology and control of arthropods of medical and veterinary importance.

E-SOVE was created in 1986 (Hamburg, Germany) during the International Congress of Entomology among the existing SOVE members Dr. Mir Mulla (University of California at Riverside), Dr. Michael Service (Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine) and Prof. Norbert Becker (Director of the German Mosquito Control Association - KABS).

The first regional meeting took place in Montpellier (France) in September of the same year with Dr. Michael Service as the first European Regional Director (European SOVE-President).

The E-SOVE is organized by the Euro-SOVE President who is elected every other year, Secretary Treasurer Dr. Major Dhillon, Northwest Mosquito and Vector Control District – Corona, CA and an Advisory Board which is formed by 16 world-renowned scientists with large expertise in medical and veterinary entomology.
