DENGUE MOSQUITOES CONTROL RAWALPINDI / ISLAMABAD
Dengue is one of the common diseases caused by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes during the monsoons. Also known as ‘break bone fever’, these mosquitoes bite during the day. As the common breeding grounds for mosquitoes are man made containers and stagnant water, implementing few hygiene and sanitation measures might help to prevent the disease.
TPL SERVICES suggests following recommendations to protect yourself from dengue fever.
1: Turn over empty pails and buckets, so that they do not collect excess water. If the container that contains water cannot be emptied, remember to cover it well when not in use.
2: Remember to clean out empty flower pots and not to over water potted plants. It is advised to not have any stagnant water around as it acts as breeding ground for the mosquitoes.
3: Apply mosquito repellents on all exposed areas, during the day as well as at night on a regular basis to prevent dengue.
4: Make sure your window and door screens do not have any holes. If so, block those areas properly to eliminate mosquitoes.
5: If someone at home is ill with dengue, try to not let the mosquitoes bite them or others in the house.
6: Always sleep under a mosquito net (especially small children as they sleep during the day and hence, the chance of mosquito bite is high during this time).
7: If you use a cooler remember to empty out and clean the water tray regularly, even when not in use.
8: Always cover your trash can or dustbin when not in use.
9: A natural method to keep mosquitoes at bay is to plant tulsi near your window. The plant has properties that do not allow mosquitoes to breed.
10: Using camphor as a repellent also works wonders. Light camphor in a room and close all the doors and windows. Leave it this way for about fifteen to twenty minutes to have a mosquito free environment.
