We are now working in Forshaga Municipality as well!

For 2019 we have the assignment of preparing for treatments of floodplain mosquitos along the Klarälven in 2020. This includes collecting mosquito abundance data in the affected area. You can find more information in the menu under Forshaga or by clicking here.

Mosquito control season is over

Our permit to control mosquitoes ended on August 31, so the mosquito control season 2018 is over now. We have already started with the preparations for next year's mosquito control. Do you want to know what we do all year round - look at "our year" here.

UPCOMING

From May 1st

We are prepared to execute the mosquito control programme.


Week 21

Monitoring of mosquito abundance was undertaken and the catch is/was published on Friday (24/5). This will continue every odd week. Our monitoring of non-target organism is undertaken weekly.


Week 23

Monitoring of mosquito abundance will continue. Our monitoring of non-target organisms will continue weekly as usual.

​Mosquitoes

There are around 50 species of mosquitoes in Sweden and we have found 33 species in the area around River Dalälven.
