Public urged to join mosquito fight

PEOPLE can help fight mosquitoes, the Limassol Municipality said on Wednesday in the wake of unstable weather which has created favourable conditions for the annoying insects.

The municipality public health service advises destroying any containers that can accumulate water such as bottles and buckets as they attract mosquitoes.

Damaged sewage should be replaced or renewed, areas should be sprayed with insect repellent, wild plantations should be cleared up and even placing small fish in tanks can help, according to the municipality.

People are also advised to use mosquito nets on windows and doors. The authorities are continuing to implement programmes in collaboration with the health ministry and the British bases, fighting mosquitoes across the west of Limassol.
