Sweden's mosquito problem in the summer

Government approves biological mosquito control

The biological larvicide Vectobac G will be sprayed from helicopters over the region of lower Dalälven to kill the mosquitoes that plague the area every summer.

The region has had a long standing problem with mosquitoes. The county council in Gävleborg is working on a long-term strategy that will tackle the root causes of the high number of mosquitoes. One of these is insufficient water regulation in the area.
