HOW TO PREVENT DENGUE
As you may know, dengue fever is on the rise these days. Dengue fever is not something that you can take lightly. It can cause death. There are simple methods to prevent dengue from becoming worse.

Firstly, clear all clogged drains. Clogged drains are the easiest place for mosquitoes to breed. This is because clogged drains contain garbage and other things that cause water to be stagnant. After we clear the drain, check that there is no stagnant water so that mosquitoes will not breed.

Water is a place for mosquitoes to lay eggs. We must clear all places that contain water weekly. To make sure mosquitoes do not breed in our house, we must change the water in vases on alternate days. Also add granular insecticide to water to prevent mosquitoes larvae.

Apart from that, turn over all water storage containers. These containers can hold water which will be an ideal breeding site. Do not forget to cover these containers with lids.

Besides that, we must check the gutters on our roofs every month. Again this is to make there is no stagnant water.

Finally, use mosquito repellent whenever necessary to keep mosquito at bay. Please use mosquito repellent in the evening or at night before going to bed. Also if you live in a terrace house, let foggers into your house. It may help to kill mosquitoes away.

Everybody should play their role to prevent dengue and also to prevent aedes from breeding. In this way we can curb this menacing disease.
