Bitten because of the rain

The heavy rain in June has caused more problems. As a result of all the flooding, there are now more places for mosquitoes to breed.

The plague of mosquitoes at the moment is so bad that people were unable to sit out at night. For example, people wanting to watch the Spain Portugal match on their terraces complained about being eaten alive. They are also frightened to use the communal swimming pools and visit the local parks.

The problem is particularly bad in the urbanisations close to the salt lakes of Torrevieja. In those areas, shops have sold out of aerosols and the plug in repellents. 

So at least that means there is some good in being in England at the moment.
