The health services are flying in an expert from Greece to deal with the mosquitoes plaguing Larnaca.

Residents near the salt lake have lodged multiple complaints regarding the mosquito population, with some claiming that is impossible to open up their windows after nightfall.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the municipality said to “effectively deal with the problem stemming from the large insect swarms, that have not decreased despite repeated aerial spraying”, that an expert would be brought in.

The expert, Spiros Mourelatos, is expected to arrive on the island on Wednesday. He will be meeting Larnaca mayor Andreas Louroudjiatis and health services officials to come up with a solution.
