Summary

In the UK mosquitoes can create a distressing biting nuisance, which affects the well-being of local residents and can pose a major economic problem in areas where tourism is a main source of income to the local community.

Experts agree that climate change will make the UK more vulnerable to the problems caused by mosquitoes. There is already evidence of the resurgence of a number of serious mosquito-borne diseases in temperate regions of Europe and the USA. Mosquito control is quickly becoming an essential part of professional pest management.

This guidance note explains the public health risk posed by invasive mosquitoes and provides guidance on their management.
