The title has been selected for the study because mosquito bites are common here in the Philippines and it’s the cause of dengue. A total of 54,659 dengue cases were reported nationwide from January 1 to August 14, 2010, much higher than the recorded 31,248 cases in the same period in 2009 and there’s not much difference in dengue cases from 2010 and as of now. The main purpose for this is to test the effectiveness of Chili and Kamias as mosquito killer and as an alternative way to make pesticide.
