The KOREAN MOSQUITO that Resists the Cold has arrived in Italy and has already Invaded Lombardy! Updates

The KOREAN MOSQUITO has already invaded LombardyHis name is Aedes koreicus and it is the “sister” of the tiger mosquito. We’re talking about of the Korean mosquito which arrived in Italy e it has already invaded Lombardy. One revealed it research conducted by the University of Milan, published in the magazine ‘Parasites & Vectors’.

As explained by the researchers, the invasion of the Korean mosquito is the result of theinvoluntary introduction by man of alien species of animals and plants, outside their territory of origin. The research reads: “The ability to disperse alien species of mosquitoes is favored by various factors, such as climatic conditions, the continuous movement of people and goods, the availability of environments suitable for the development of the larvae and of hosts on which these insects can make the blood meal “.
The spread of the Korean mosquito in the foothills and in the plains of Northern Italy is advancing rapidly.

In the course of a survey conducted among the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia, the State researchers have collected about 6 thousand larvae e hundreds of mosquito eggs. Many of those mosquitoes belonged precisely to the “aedes koreicus” species, probably native to the South Korean volcanic island of the district of Jeju.
In some statements reported by the newspaper Corriere della Sera, Sara Epis, teacher of Department of Biosciences and research coordinator, explained that the Korean mosquito was
reported for the first time in Italy in 2011 in the province of Belluno, at altitudes and climatic conditions unsuitable for the survival of most mosquito species. Since then, reports in the North have increased.

It is a species that tolerates low temperatures very well. Precisely for this reason, it has already colonized a large hilly-mountainous area of Veneto e Trentino.
Are there any risks? The need to study the presence of the Korean mosquito in Italy is linked to the fact that alien mosquitoes are vectors of pathogenic viruses for humans and animals, but for the moment there seems to be no alarm.
