Aedes AlbopictusMost people have been bitten by a mosquito in their lifetime, some of us more than others. Those annoying little critters leave people with numerous itchy bites, but in the process can also infect the individual with diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and in some cases, the Zika virus.

In the last few years, a new species of mosquito has made its way across the Mediterranean to Spanish shores; the Tiger mosquito (Aedes Albopictus).
