The Department of Health relaunches the campaign of the Mosquito Tiger in the municipality (10/05/2019)

The Department of Health has relaunched the Mosquito Tigre campaign before the arrival of heat and the approach of summer with a series of practical and preventive advice aimed at the population while participating in the Regional System for Surveillance of the Tiger Mosquito promoted by the Ministry of Health of the Region of Murcia which has also joined this year the Faculty of Biology at the University of Murcia, as reported by the mayor of Health, Catalina Pérez.

The Department of Health began this week the dissemination of the campaign for the markets of San Javier and Santiago de la Ribera with an information point with the plague control company CTL, for the dissemination of an informative triptych that will be distributed massively between the population, since this type of mosquito usually inhabit, preferably, in the gardens of the houses.

Among other things it is recommended to avoid the presence of stagnant water, periodically emptying the containers that accumulate water such as dishes of pots, vases, animal troughs and other similar objects, or turning upside down the containers that may accumulate rainwater such as cubaos, wheelbarrows or showers, among others.

The triptych, which includes tips for making a homemade trap, recommends the use of mosquito nets and repellents for the skin as a preventive measure to bites.

Wash the bite and apply a disinfectant on it should be enough before a bite, but persist the discomfort is recommended to see a doctor.

On the other hand, San Javier, as last summer continues to collaborate with the Regional System of Vigilgancia del Mosquito Tigre for which seven ovitraps have already been placed, one more than last year, in order to expand the vectorial control of the possible presence of the tiger mosquito in the municipality.

These are biological traps, which are located in public places, and only use water, a strip of paper to capture the eggs of the tiger mosquito, and two balls of food (alfalfa) that make the call function.

These traps are analyzed periodically through the regional surveillance system.
