North country experienced the hottest July in its history – the recorded temperature of 33.7 degrees Celsius, which is an absolute record.

Because of the heat, the mosquitoes, which every summer the Finns spoil the rest of nature, has virtually disappeared.

As explained by a Professor at the University of Lapland Dr. Jukka Salmela, shallow ponds of Lapland, which mainly breed mosquitoes this summer mostly dried up, and female mosquitoes was nowhere to lay their larvae.

However, the current hot conditions are ideal for breeding of flies and gadflies, the expert warns. Both of these flies are parasitic, but botflies are different in that they, having found their victim, lay their eggs under her skin; flies limit themselves to just drink the blood of warm-blooded animals, whether cattle, human or other mammal.
