Preventing the development of mosquitoes in the countryside
Even in the countryside, mosquitoes find countless places to reproduce. Any pocket of stagnant water can host a mosquito population. It also depends on the abundance of food (organic substance, microscopic algae, and other microorganisms), the temperature, and the number of predators (dragonfly nymphs, fish, aquatic beetles, etc.).
Some examples include buckets, waste, tires, tanks, ditches, drains, and puddles.
Indications given for the breeding sites present in domestic and urban areas are valid in these cases too. They are, in order of priority: eliminate, empty, hermetically cover or treat with appropriate larvicidal products.
