The reason why the number of mosquitoes is so high is because of the big amount of melt-water on the Omsk region territory. This summer Omsk citizen need to buy as much different ointments and sprays as possible in order to protect themselves from mosquitoes because it’s going to be a lot of them. As a professor from Omsk State Polytechnical University Igor Bogdanov said the female mosquitoes lay their eggs in low places which can be filled with melt-water. During the flood there are a lot of short-term ponds and as we all know we had a very warm spring so the ponds were dried out by the sun and mosquitoes’ eggs turned into wiggle-tails. We already can see a lot of the parasites on the streets but the pinnacle will be on June and July. And people need to be very careful because mosquitoes are the transmitters of dangerous diseases like malaria and tularemia. And meanwhile Omsk citizens are complaining about mosquitoes and even write in social networks that they not only bite but even browse you.
