A six-day extensive operation to counter the spread of mosquitoes in the Torrevieja area was launched on Saturday, in the wake of the biggest plague of the insect reported over the summer period.

Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolón, said the big rise in the pest was caused by the heavy rain at the end of August, backed up by high temperatures which allowed the hatching of mosquito larvae in wetland areas of the municipality.
