War against mosquitoes

There has been an explosion in the mosquito population. The main reason for this has been the torrential rains during May and huge pools of stagnant rain water have proved to be an ideal breeding ground.

Nicosia council is making a major effort to counter the growing complaints of its residents in relation to mosquitoes.

All regions within the council boundaries are being systematically sprayed. In addition natural predators that eat mosquito larvae are being introduced.
