Increase in mosquito population, a concern for residents in Lefkosa

There is currently a growing concern by residents in Lefkosa about the increase of mosquito this season and according to report by Kibris Postasi, this problem has remained unsolved for years.

The director of a private pest control company told Kibris Postasi that improvement of stagnant water sources and regular spraying were very important.

He also said that the bites from mosquitos that have evolved have been causing allergic reactions and skin irritation.

Killing off mosquito larvae in February and March is very important, he said, noting that data from the primary health services would reveal how effective are preventative measures.

He emphasised that it was essential to kill off the larvae to prevent reproduction in the winter time, in particular in enclosed areas and wetlands. Where no preventative action is taken, a mosquito infestation is unavoidable and the public suffers, he said.
