Mosquitoes take advantage of small puddles in containers such as jugs, buckets, pots or toys to lay their larvae. Therefore, the main prevention measure is to avoid the accumulation of water in patios, terraces or gardens.
The “A casa teva” campaign helps locate these possible breeding sites and informs about the measures that must be taken to avoid them. It started in May and will last until October.
The selection of homes takes into account the characteristics of the environment and the species and aspects related to social inequalities.

The risk areas for mosquito proliferation in public spaces have been expanded from 82 to 100, and surveillance has been intensified.
