The Asian tiger mosquito is an invasive species native to Southeast Asia, from tropical climates, which has been living in our country for quite a number of years.
This species is a transmitter of more than 20 infectious diseases and its bites are extremely unpleasant, resulting in itching, swelling and stronger allergic reactions than those of the common mosquito.
How to avoid being stung:
- Avoid stagnant water: mosquitoes lay eggs on water, so we should avoid containers with leftover and stagnant water in order for them not to become a breeding ground.
- Protect the skin: wear long-sleeved clothing, long trousers and socks to avoid being bitten
- Turn off the light at night: avoid attracting insects with light bulbs and open windows
- Avoid strong smells: mosquitoes are attracted to soaps or sweet-smelling perfumes, avoid them if you are going to be somewhere where mosquitoes are likely to be
- Body hygiene: smells such as sweat also attract these insects, so we recommend proper hygiene to avoid being bitten
- Use mosquito nets: cover windows to prevent mosquitoes and other insects from getting in
- Specialised tiger mosquito insecticide: if mosquitoes show up, check that your flying insect insecticide is also extremely effective against tiger mosquitoes
- Apply a repellent: protect your body with repellents to avoid being bitten
- Care and treatment: if, despite taking the necessary measures, you are bitten by a mosquito, consult your chemist on the most effective treatment for each type of bite
