THE tiger mosquito season normally lasts from May until September or October in Spain, although the peak month here is July, and breeding will take place near water.
“For a mosquito to transmit viruses, the virus must be able to multiply inside the female mosquito and then make its way to her salivary gland. When an infected mosquito bites someone, it injects the virus into that person and they become infected and can become sick. Mosquito-borne viruses that spread like this include West Nile, Zika, Dengue Fever, and others.”
Phew, at least we know now! – some people might find mosquitos to be annoying, but at least they aren’t transmitting Covid-19.
