More than sixty departments are on red alert for the tiger mosquito according to the latest map released by the site Mosquito vigilance. The arrival of fine weather and the rising heat have accentuated the phenomenon.

« A heat wave immediately leads to a phenomenon of multiplication and proliferation. It is normally said that a tiger mosquito takes ten days to transform from larva to adult mosquito if it is 23°C during the day and 15°C at night. But when it’s 30 degrees during the day, it’s more than ten days, it’s six/seven days! It goes much faster “, recently explained Stéphane Robert, president of the Mosquito Vigilance site at Europe 1.

To protect against the tiger mosquito, Vigilance Moustiques devotes a page from his website to the various measures to be taken.

At the beginning of the month, the Ministry of Solidarity and Health issued a press release to remind that the tiger mosquito carried many diseases such as chikungunya, dengue or zika.
