PROTESTERS have marched through Malaga to demand more action in the fight against mosquitoes.
Stop Mosquitoes marched through the city to protest the lack of action taken by the council, specifically in Guadalhorce, by the river.
Campaigners complain that despite repeated meetings, the issue of mosquitoes in the region has still seen no significant action.
Stop Mosquitos began the march at Sacaba Beach, before ending at Clara Campoamor College.
The group have had biweekly meetings with the City Council, but feel nothing has changed.
Spokesman Mayte Martin said: “We do not not see any new solutions or action.”
This comes days after it emerged the environmental monitoring company hired by the City Council, Athisa, only examine the absence of larvae, meaning only adult mosquitoes can be detected.
Despite the march, Malaga City Council have been working with Guadalhorce, one of Europe’s largest mosquito expert groups to learn how to combat the presence of the bug.
Meeting this month, they discussed the success of traps to catch the insects in Camargue Natural Park in France
