Mosquito invasion delayed

Local News

As compared to previous years, there are fewer mosquitoes everywhere in the country.

The fact that there was no need for mosquito spraying so far is mainly due to the dry spring we had and the recent rainy weather. When there is drought, mosquitoes aren’t able to deposit eggs and too much rain prevents the eggs from hatching into larvae. However, if the weather warms up, the number of insects may grow suddenly. László Szabó, adjunct at the Department of Hydrobiology said that the number of mosquitoes was expected to increase in areas where there were many of them even before, like Tócó-völgy and the outskirts. In the city center, they are not likely to appear in large numbers.
