Prevent Dengue
It is a mosquito borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus.
1. Apply Mosquito Repellants
This is the number one defense that you can do whether you are at home or not. Most of these Mosquito Repellants are in lotion form, which is safe to use, and the smell would not harm anyone, not even the kids. Of course, you could ask the attending pediatrician of your kids if you are not, sure which mosquito repellant is safe and recommended. Although, they are safe, you have to follow instructions for your benefit and the safety of your loved ones. You do not just use it if you would leave home; you have to use it every day, especially during dengue season, even indoors.
2. Keep Doors Closed Use Window Screens
Of course, we want to keep fresh air to come inside our home but make sure that you screen your windows and doors to strain and put walls on these deadly mosquitoes. If you do not have screens right now, it is better advised to install units in every door and window available. Along with it, spray areas, which you feel mosquitoes could inhabit and exist.
3. Wear Protective Clothing
According to health experts, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes mostly attack during the day, especially in the morning while a silent attack happens at night. To those countries and other tropical areas that are experiencing rainy seasons that are prone or have been experiencing this problem whenever this season comes, should have clothing that could protect you like long pants, long-sleeved shirts, socks, and shoes especially when doing outdoor activities in a place where you feel not safe at all.
4. Use Mosquito Nets at Home
This is ideal for houses that do not have any protective window screens, particularly for those homes that have newly born babies and kids. Yes, it might sound too conservative and far from the modern gadgets and latest solutions that can be used, but mosquito nets are effective, especially to kids who could not protect themselves more than adults. Anyhow, there are cute modern designs of mosquito nets these days. These are advised too if you would go in a camping or activity where you have to sleep outside. It is better to be on guard than to be off guard because of the so-called fashion disillusions.
5. Scrub and Clean Container Margins
You do not just replace water in containers, water buckets, and other vases where water are stored or regularly used; you should wash them and scrub them, especially the edges and margins of each container. Cleaning them means scraping the insides away, which is an effective way of shunning the possibility of building a colony of mosquitoes, which is possible despite that fresh water has been filled and replaced in these containers and fillers.
