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 which, however, limit the development of other species which prefer large unpolluted bodies of water.

Bloodsucking may occur predominantly at night in the case of Culex pipiens and Anopheles maculipennis, or, during the day in the case of Aedes albopictus.

There is very great medical interest in the most markedly synanthropic species (e.g. A. albopictus and C. pipiens) because of the possibility of transmitting arbovirus during bloodsucking, in addition to allergic reactions following a bite which may appear in people already prone to allergic reactions.

Another aspect of health interest not always taken into account is the impact that mosquitoes have on the quality of life: in certain contexts where the presence of the tiger mosquito is massive and uncontrolled, there is an important downgrading of the quality of life brought about by changes in habits and lifestyles caused by the activity of the tiger mosquito.

The fight against mosquitoes is very complex and necessarily requires careful monitoring aimed at identifying the species at the root of the problem and its development sites.

In this regard, Igiencontrol is equipped to carry out precise monitoring before intervening with disinfestation action. Over the years, Igiencontrol has spread the culture of fighting mosquitoes through the use of natural competitors.
