The AAssociation of Pest Control Companies of Catalonia (Adepap) has warned of the possible arrival in Catalonia of a new invasive species of mosquito –the ‘Aedes japonicus’ in its scientific name- coming from the East and transmitting viruses of diseases such as dengue -which causes a high fever (40 ° C) accompanied by two of the following symptoms: severe headache, pain behind the eyeballs, muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, enlarged lymph nodes or rash-, the chikungunya -an infectious disease characterized by acute fevers, skin rashes and joint pain- and, above all, the West Nile virus, a disease that usually has no or mild symptoms (fever, headache, body aches, rash, or swollen lymph nodes), but is fatal if the virus enters the brain.

As reported by the Adepap in a statement this Tuesday, It’s about a less aggressive mosquito than the tiger mosquito and what do you prefer colder climates -his eggs even resist freezing-, and he has warned that he has a capacity to very fast expansion and that has already reached the Iberian Peninsula, so it could arrive in Catalonia “in the coming months”.

“This mosquito is very difficult to eradicate and he has come to stay “, explained the president of Adepap, quim Sendra, and added that if the mosquito reaches Catalonia, it will do so for the north and in mountain areas, because the insect does not suit areas with temperatures that exceed 30ºC.
