El Ejido 'fights' against mosquitoes with larvicidal treatments

The City Council asks neighbors to report when they detect significant sources of mosquito activity

The Department of Agriculture and Environment continues with the work of control, early detection of larvae and treatment against mosquitoes to prevent the reproduction of new specimens in scuppers and stagnant water points.

Actions on prevention and control are carried out weekly in bodies of water, such as collectors and lakes, which are likely to host the larval stages of these mosquitoes. In these cases, after monitoring, larvicidal products are applied, in addition to adulticidal treatments through nebulization with products authorized in environmental health.

The works are completed with treatments in areas of dense vegetation and in municipal gardens, which shelter adult mosquito populations, with the help of specialized vehicles and machinery. The City Council guides these tasks in the face of rising temperatures and in order to avoid the inconvenience that the proliferation of mosquitoes cause in the population.

In addition, the consistory requests citizen collaboration to avoid incidence in the private sphere, such as terraces and swimming pools, and asks neighbors to report when they detect significant sources of mosquito activity.
