In April and May, larvicidal treatments have intensified in the municipal centers as well as in those areas where a high level of adult mosquitoes has been detected, to try to alleviate the discomfort they cause to the population.

The treatments developed so far, together with an intense public awareness campaign, have managed to reduce the intensity of the plague, although now the focus is on private properties. 90 percent of the outbreaks of breeding and development of the tiger mosquito occur in the private sphere, so in addition to a series of recommendations such as avoiding accumulation of water or maintaining chlorinated pools, the City of San Javier has offered a service to individuals who for reasons of confinement could not attend to these considerations.
This service has revealed a large number of mosquito outbreaks within private properties, mostly second homes, the owners of which have been unable to avoid stagnant water in swimming pools and other areas of the properties. In this situation, the City of San Javier reminds citizens of the need to respect the recommendations to avoid mosquito outbreaks on their properties, report the detection of any new outbreak, and in the event of not being able to attend to the property for any reason.
