Mosquito-Bulletin Nr. 1 für die Schweiz
Switzerland is a country with highly diverse topographies divided by the alpine rim, from altitudes above 4000 m to 200 m above sea level. With different climatic conditions and often not predictable precipitation patterns we are confronted with a multitude of mosquito problems. In order to predict the appearance of mosquitoes and inform the residents we have the intention to issue bulletins whenever advisable. >> Download Bulletin
