ALMERIA has become a favoured habitat for the non-native invasive tiger mosquito from south-east Asia.

It was first detected in Mojacar in 2015 and according to the Society for the Study and Recovery of Almeria’s Biodiversity (SERBAL), it is now “particularly relevant” not only in Mojacar, but has also been found in Vera, Garrucha, Nijar, Carboneras and Pulpi.

Although other areas in the province were originally thought to be free of tiger mosquitoes, SERBAL experts have located them this year in Aguadulce, Roquetas, Adra, Almeria City, Huercal de Almeria, and Cabo de Gata.
