Mosquito control areas 2019

We have applied for floodwater mosquito control with VectoBac G within frame areas of  12 555 ha in total, a slight increase from 11,671 ha for 2018.  For 2018, as for 2017, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and regional authorities granted permits for treatments within 10,346 ha in total. Three Natura 2000-areas, Jordbärsmyren-Ålbo, Tjursöarkipelagen, Spjutholmen as well as parts of Båtfors were denied permit.

The maps below show an overview of applied frame areas for floodwater mosquito control 2019 ("new" areas in light blue including previously denied areas) and detailed maps for each municipality (frame areas within the actual municipality in brown, areas in other municipalities in blue).

The decision for mosquito control areas 2019 by the Swedish EPA is scheduled for week 15. Some additional exclusions can occur where landowners deny permission.
