Culicidae
The Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is an invasive species of mosquito which has only recently invaded the Maltese Islands. It is an aggresive mosquito which has now become common in many areas, replacing or competing with the noisier common house mosquito (Culex pipiens). Its bite is generally serious and can cause severe swelling in the affected area.
