  Surveys of mosquitoes were carried out in the area of Milan in 2006 and in 2007. Nineteen species were collected. The most important were: Culex pipiens, C. modestus and C. hortensis, two Ochlerotatus caspius and O. detritus and three Aedes vexans, A. geniculatus and A. cinereus. Stegomyia albopictus is very harmful from June to the first week of October. The dynamic of the populations of mosquitoes, the larvicide and adulticide treatments are referred, with some considerations on the possibility of control of these pests.
