Abstract: Asian Mosquito Tiger or Aedes Aldopictus is a mosquito which reached the Maltese Islands towards the end of summer of 2009 and has since spread and proliferated all over Malta and Gozo. It is a nuisance because of its ferocious biting on humans but it can also be a carrier of a number of diseases which may eventually be introduced to our islands causing outbreaks and resulting in a negative impact on our tourism and jeopardizing agricultural development resulting in major economic consequences.
