Mosquito

Mosquito (Aedes albopictus, Culex pipiens, Anopheles sp.) Mosquitoes are a species of fly associated with larval development in water and the sucking of blood by females from various animal species. Of course, each species has precise environmental requirements, for example Aedes albopictus (tiger mosquito) has adapted to man-made environments by successfully completing its cycle of development in micro-polluted watercourses, conditions

Soft-bodied tick

Soft-bodied tick (Argas reflexus) The soft-bodied tick is a mite characterised by an ovoid body flattened in a dorsal-ventral direction. From a biological point of view, these are bloodsucking ectoparasitic arthropods in all mobile stages of development. Of particular interest in an urban environment is Argas reflexus or pigeon tick; this species is associated with the city pigeon and in

Housefly

Housefly (Musca domestica) The housefly is by far the most common and ubiquitous insect known. Adults are active from spring to autumn with peaks of occurrence in warmer months when temperatures reduce times for larval and pupal development with the resulting formation of numerically large populations. This species typically frequents enclosed environments (e.g. dwellings, stables, warehouses) and the immediate vicinity

Ant

Ant (Lasius sp., Crematogaster sp., Formica sp., Iridomyrmex sp.) Ants are insects which live in pluriannual matriarchal colonies "dominated" by a female (queen) to which a large number of sterile females (workers) are subject. Colonies are established in the most diverse places and in accordance with the biological needs of the species. Typically, it is possible to find ant nests

Cockroach

Cockroach (Blatta orientalis, Supella longipalpa and Blattella germanica) Cockroaches are insects characterized by a marked aversion to light and an omnivorous diet based on organic waste of various kinds found at environmental level. The three species most likely to infest habitational and working environments have differing biological aspects. For example, B. orientalis is a typical pest of subterranean environments (ducts,
