The be from heat attracts, as every year, different vermin. One of them are mosquitos, quite annoying insects that circulate at any time in the summer. However, special care must be taken with Aedes aegypti as it transmits the virus of the dengue, one of the most common in Argentina and neighboring countries. For this reason, the biologist Nicolás Schweigmann offered advice for to prevent Y detect.

Regarding the detection of the dengue mosquito, the Conicet researcher indicated that it moves “on an apple scale”, that is, it does not move away from the hatchery. In general, he does not cross the street and moves within a radius of 50 meters, in the places where he does best. If you, with the neighbors, can see that there are no containers with water, you are generating a safety factor ”, he detailed in communication with AM750.

Another important fact is that aedes aegypti is an insect that only has daytime activity, so it is not worth using coils or chemicals at night to scare them away. For the moment, the biologist warned that “he is doing very well in the area of AMBA and it is each time at higher levels ”. “It is adapting better to the human because it follows the steps better; 95% of the bites it makes are to humans ”.

Changes in prevention

On the other hand, he mentioned that humans “do everything backwards.” Rather than keeping spiders and pellet bugs for mosquitoes and larvae to eat, people choose to destroy their habitat. “Not wanting to have bugs in the City are conceptual errors that, with environmentalism and Ministry of Health, is changing little by little. That is not the prevention advice that should be handled ”.

In turn, another of Schweigmann’s advice is to “be observant” with any water tank, be it vases, dish racks or other containers. “They are like little worms vibrating,” he mentioned. “If you have a closed bottle with little water and with these larvae, you will see how they are transformed into those mosquitoes with black and white legs,” he explained.
