CONTROL OF THE ASIAN TIGER MOSQUITO
How to control the Asian tiger mosquito
We can prevent entry of mosquitoes into the homes, installing mosquito nets to prevent the passage through windows and doors.
In cases that can not be physically eliminate this buildup, we must take preventive and corrective measures.
Unfortunately, the global dispersal of Asian tiger mosquito is a consequence of economic globalization. It is not the only invasive species while being one of the most notorious for chopping activity. As invasive species have the mussel zebra, the American crayfish, turtles of Florida or American mink.
Exotic animals also have the disadvantage of becoming invading species.

Efficient elimination of standing water in containers, along with collective action, can provide very good results. The total local eradication is not easy, but a huge improvement can be obtained
Women should not wear a skirt if they want to avoid mosquito bites.
If we want to avoid the presence he presence of the Asian tiger mosquito in our homes, we will put mosquito nets on windows.
We may also use insecticide dispensers are connected to the light, keeping the windows open. In any case, you get better results if you cut the root problem and eliminate all sources of larval rearing.
Also in the trees on the street may have holes in the stem that flood. Small water features can also be a problem if the water is not moving. In consequence, we will address the relevant Administration.
We have to get used to the idea that we flooded with small spaces. The maintenance and chlorinating swimming pools are no problem, only problem would be greatly diminished if the water level.
We must remember that we are at an early stage of colonization of a country. If our action is determined, we can greatly relieve the problems of those who already have mosquitoes, and slow its spread throughout the peninsula. This last thing is very important.
Massive fumigations are not applied to combat the Asian tiger mosquito tiger because firstly, it is not good for health because pesticides are not harmless to humans.
Secondly, it would also have environmental risks. But also, it would be effective: the fumigations have low effectiveness on adults, and do not affect the eggs or larvae. In the best case, there would be some improvement for a few days.
However, in an area where the mosquito is already established, any measures will eliminate as many mosquitoes dispersed. And although we managed to kill a lot, provided eggs would produce many more adults than a week. In this case, the counterparts of low toxicity and effectiveness of spraying make it not be best suited as a routine solution. In any case we must prioritize the search for larval breeding areas, both by citizens and the administratioon.
The fight against Asian tiger mosquito is a matter of civility. If we communicate in our house where mosquitoes breed is our duty to correct it, just as if they were bad odors, noise or water leakage.
Be considered as making noise after hours, emit smoke or cause water infiltration, to name a few. Obviously your application does not arise in the most common. Normally, no one's fault that we larvae appear at home, what does that have to pursue is the refusal to fix it.
