Zika and Dengue are viral diseases transmitted by infected mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) found in warm, humid environments. Mining data from social networks helps to find locations with highest density of reported cases. Differently from approaches that analyze text from social networks, we present a new strategy analyzing Instagram images. We use two customized Deep Neural Networks. The first detects objects commonly used for mosquito reproduction with 85% precision. The second differentiates mosquitoes as Culex or Aedes aegypti with 82.5% accuracy. Results indicate that both networks can improve the effectiveness of current social network mining strategies such as the VazaZika project.
