Let elevator manufacturers hengda fuji tell you something very interesting. Nancheng woman lived on the 13th floor and was still harassed by mosquitoes. Physician: Mosquitoes are "in elevators."

Recently, Ms. Liu who lives in Nancheng City has reported that there are a lot of mosquitoes in her house. Even if she lives in a high-rise building on the 13th floor, it cannot avoid mosquito harassment. "How did the mosquito come to the high floor?" Ms. Liu was very puzzled. To this end, the reporter contacted the Director of the Disinfection and Pest Control Center of the Dongguan City Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Chief Physician Feng Zhijie to learn. You may not think that mosquitoes are on the elevator to the upper floors!

Mosquitoes also "elevate"

As for why mosquitoes can fly into the homes of residents of the 13th floor, Feng Zhijie told reporters that mosquitoes can fly at vertical heights of more than ten meters. The area of ​​activity is generally less than six floors. Mosquitoes that appear above ten floors are usually boarded. The elevator went up. He introduced how much mosquitoes are related to water accumulation. Flooded areas tend to be the hardest hit areas for mosquitoes, such as poorly drained sewers and large and medium-sized water bodies with poor water quality and incapable of rearing fish. Places with poor sanitation, places with high pots and pots, bamboo forests, and waste products There will be more mosquitoes near the acquisition stations, construction sites, open-air foul ditch, and underground parking lots.

In the year, mosquitoes have two activity peaks, from May to June and October to November. Temperatures of 25°C and water are the most suitable for mosquito breeding. Feng Zhijie explained that in the summer, the number of mosquitoes is relatively small, because of the decrease in the temperature of the water.

The most metabolically active crowd is most loved by mosquitoes

Mosquito bites are related to the body's excretion of carbon dioxide and body surface temperature, so people with a strong metabolism, such as children, pregnant women, and people with a lot of sweat, are relatively easy to be bitten by mosquitoes. After a person is bitten by a mosquito, local skin redness, itching, blisters, etc., the severity of local skin reactions often varies from person to person. Daily home can be used to apply some cool oil, wind-oil, wind-driven oil, etc. have a certain degree of mitigation.

According to Feng Zhijie, mosquitoes in Dongguan are mainly Culex pipiens pallens, which accounts for about 80%; followed by Aedes albopictus, which accounts for about 15%; Anopheles mosquitoes are rare. Culex pipiens pallens can transmit JE; Aedes albopictus can transmit dengue fever, Chikungunya fever, and Zika virus disease; Anopheles can transmit malaria. In recent years, Dengue fever transmitted by Aedes albopictus is more common. In addition, Culex quinquefasciatus causes bite mainly in the evening, and Aedes mosquito bites mainly in the daytime.
