Prevent Aedes Mosquito Breeding

Prevent Aedes mosquitoes breeding

The viruses that cause dengue fever, chikungunya and zika are carried by the Aedes mosquito. As the bite of an infective Aedes mosquito spreads diseases, it is crucial to prevent its breeding.

The Aedes mosquito is easily identifiable by the distinctive black and white stripes on its body. It prefers to breed in clean, stagnant water easily found in our homes. You can get rid of the Aedes mosquito by following the Checklist For A Mozzie-Free Home and frequently checking and removing stagnant water in your premises.
