Dengue fever and dengue haemorrhagic fever (a more severe form) are the most common mosquito-borne viral diseases in the world.

Dengue fever is an illness caused by infection with a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito. There are four serotypes of this virus (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4) which can infect you.

Dengue fever is spread though the bite of the Aedes Mosquito.
 
To prevent dengue fever, you must prevent the breeding of its carrier, the Aedes mosquitoes. Aedes mosquitoes are identified by the black and white stripes on their bodies. You can get rid of the Aedes mosquito by frequently checking and removing stagnant water in your home.
