Signs of a Mosquito Infestation
In the Costa Blanca we have all seen a huge increase in this unpleasant little pest after the recent
The Tiger Mosquito (larger) is characterised by its black and white striped legs, and small black and white striped body and native to the tropical and subtropical areas of Southeast Asia; however, in the past couple of decades this species has invaded many countries throughout the world through the transport of goods and increasing international travel.
This mosquito has become a significant pest in many communities because it closely associates with humans (rather than living in wetlands), and typically flies and feeds in the daytime in addition to at dusk and dawn. So how can we control these blood sucking pests (it is only the females that want your blood)? Mosquitoes lay up to 250 eggs at a time in still water, which will hatch in 7 to 15 days. If standing water is eliminated weekly, many mosquitoes will be kept from breeding in the first place.
