Sometimes our guests arrive here at Cascina Rosso with a couple of mosquito bites they picked up before their arrival during the Summer months. Guests often comment on how happy they are to NOT find mosquitoes here.
Even though we cannot honestly guarantee that there are no mosquitoes, I (Judy) have, in the 12 years of living here, only seen 3 mosquitoes!
The near-absence of mosquitoes is probably due to our altitude above sea level of 550 meters. And also because in Summertime we are blessed with cool afternoon and evening breezes. Our village of Roccaverano is a little highter at 800 meters above sea level. In addition, we have always been very careful to not let water accumulate which could become breeding places for mosquitoes.
