Asian Tiger Mosquito Oss
The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) attempts to eradicate exotic mosquitoes on an industrial estate in Oss. There is one Asian tiger mosquito found, the authority reported on Thursday. Such insect can transmit pathogenic viruses to humans and animals. The fight against the mosquito has to prevent that the tiger mosquito can multiply and will take residence in the Netherlands. The chance that the exotic mosquito will carry pathogenic viruses in Netherlands, is very small. The 'Brabant' tiger mosquito was found at an importer of used tires.
