MOSQUITOES

The Pest : Mosquitoes
Aedes aegypti, commonly known as ‘yellow fever mosquito’, is a mosquito that can host the dengue fever. The mosquito is most frequently found in the tropics, and feed around dawn and dusk. Warm temperatures and rainy, damp conditions are perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

The Threat : The most significant threat of mosquitoes is the fact that they can infect people with Dengue fever, which is life-threatening if left untreated. Signs and symptoms of Dengue fever include:

  • Sudden onset fever, with severe headache
  • Muscle and joint pains
  • Rashes
  • Gastritis
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea
