Ants, Mozzies and Roaches: For the people who want to eliminate all moving insects from their house and surrounding areas Saturday Digamextra. Can I remind you that we live in a highly agricultural area where the local people relying on all pollinating insects for their crops EG. Mangos, Avocados, Olives etc. I understand you don’t like Mozzies, Ants or Cockroaches most people don’t and by all means blitz inside your home, but please be aware that the insecticide that kills all these things unfortunately also kills our pollinators. For ants use Ant powder, Mozzies a repellent up here in Frigiliana they spray the drains for Cockroaches I can’t say for Nerja, let’s all be aware of how we use these insect sprays and keep our environment friendly.
