Larnaca Municipality stepping up mosquito spraying

Larnaca Municipality said on Monday that it was continuing systematic spraying against mosquitoes in the interest of public health and in order minimise the inconvenience to residents and visitors.

In particular the public is urged not to install containers, barrels and old tanks with water at their premises where a large number of mosquitoes  can breed.
