Anecpla, the Spanish Pest Managers Association just issued their latest press release on the dangerous decrease of mosquito-eating bird in Spain.
The swift population has decreased by 20% in the last 20 years in Spain. Its decrease is inversely proportional to the increase in the colonies of feral cats, habitual hunters of this type of birds.
Swifts exert a fundamental function for the balance of urban ecosystem, acting as a natural predator of mosquitoes dangerous to human health like the tiger mosquito, who has the capacity to transmit serious diseases such as Zika virus, Dengue or Chikungunya, among others.
