Info about, for or on mosquitoes in Italy

(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: XX MONTH 2016)

Here are some links about, for or on mosquitoes in Italy:  

INFORMATION
  • The Glorious Twelfth – "The glorious twelfth is a term used usually to refer to the 12th of April, the start of the hunting season in Italy for the common mosquito (Bitius Leggius) and to a lesser extent the tiger mosquito (aggressive-bitius)." – Posted on – blogger: Peter Grey – ""  – Source: Englishman in Italy – "An Englishman, his Sicilian wife and an Italian / English Dictionary"
  • How to Avoid Mosquitoes – the Bane of Italy’s Summers – "Here’s how you can avoid mosquitoes when you are in Italy. But first, a little story about my own, itchy, mosquito issues. A couple of weekends back I went to two outdoor music concerts here in Milan, Italy, but I carelessly forgot to cover myself in a layer of mosquito repellent.  Big mistake, and I paid the price. I was feasted upon by lots of hungry little blood suckers, otherwise known as mosquitoes. They really are the bane of Italy’s otherwise lovely summers. It took around a week for all the irritating itching to die down. Last weekend, I went cycling around Milan to visit a park I had never seen before and to have a look around the lovely Villa Necchi. Remembering my itchy concert experience, before I set off, I covered myself with a good layer of mosquito repellent. I’m happy to report, the repellent kept the nasty little bloodsuckers away. The moral of this little tale is if you are coming to Italy this summer and want to avoid mosquitoes, bring some mosquito repellent. If you don’t, the annoying itching may well have an adverse effect on your otherwise positive Italy vacation experience" – July 16, 2012 – by  – "About" – Source: ITALY chronicles – "The Italy You Don't Know" – "all about the Italy you don't know - news, politics, views, analysis, travel, food and more.

Southern Europe will become a 'fertile ground' for the virus because warmer temperatures increasing the rate at which the disease-carrying mosquitoes reproduce and bite, researchers said.
