Abstract

Mosquito plague in Świnoujście area can be controlled if constant actions would be undertaken from April (use of microbial biocides for snow-melt mosquito larva control) to August (use of microbial biocides for polygeneration larva species control and use of chemical biocides for adult mosquito control). Furthermore, there is a need for actions that would make environment less friendly to mosquitoes and would help to identify breeding sites of aggressive mosquito species - Aedes vexans. There is also a necessity to educate the inhabitants of Świnoujście area on the danger resulting from uncontrolled use of insecticides in protected areas and those which are unique from a faunistic perspective.
