More Litter=More Mosquitoes

20-03-152pic.png

Aedes mosquitoes like to breed in small containers. That is why litter is such a problem and may really increase the mosquito populations. They can lay their eggs in the rainwater collected on all the disposed rubbish. Even beach litter is a problem, as the mosquitoes have adapted to breed in brackish waters, too.

 There are many grassroots movements and organizations throughout Colombo that are working to address this issue. Please do you part and join one of them.
