The Councilor for Agriculture, Francisco Pérez, recalled that “this year, we will allocate the amount of 100,000 euros to combat and eliminate this pest; since avoiding the possible inconvenience that these originate to the population is one of our priorities at this time ”

The municipal official has stressed that “over the last months, work has been carried out to control the populations, through the installation of traps and capture methods; in addition to tracking them to prevent their proliferation ”

The government of El Ejido has reinforced this week the mosquito eradication treatments in Almerimar and the surrounding area in view of the imminent rise in temperatures expected in the coming months. Although preventive work has been carried out throughout the year, it is precisely on this date that more exhaustive control is exercised over these populations.

The Councilor for Agriculture and Environment, Francisco Pérez, has checked today the fumigation tasks that are being developed throughout this week and recalled that “this year, we will allocate the amount of 100,000 euros to combat and eliminate this pest in Almerimar and the surroundings; since avoiding the inconvenience that these insects originate in the population is one of our priorities at this time ”.

 The municipal official has stressed that “over the last months, work has been carried out to control the populations, through the installation of traps and capture methods; in addition to monitoring them to prevent their proliferation. ” It should be noted that "to the preventive work that we have been undertaking throughout the winter and whose purpose is to act on the larval foci to avoid their spread in times of rising temperatures, now the treatments on adults are joined". So much so that the concessionaire of this service is immersed in the treatments of green areas such as hedges, public gardens or roundabouts.

Pérez wanted to show "his gratitude to the communities of neighbors as well as to the owners of swimming pools and gardens for their manifest involvement in the adoption of preventive measures and applying the appropriate treatments in private areas to avoid the proliferation of these insects." Fact that has described the mayor as "responsible attitude and great sensitivity in offering an effective response; adopting a series of measures that are paying off, always under the advice of municipal technicians ”. In this line, it should be remembered that, for a few years, awareness campaigns have been carried out complementary to the treatments in the field of pest control.
