Mosquitoes are one of the most common insects that we can see in our environment. However, despite of being small, these insects carry fatal and deadly diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, and yellow fever.
According to inquirer.net, Dengue outbreak cases in the Philippines has risen up to 16% in 2012. There are several provinces in the country that are constantly being under siege by mosquitoes every year.
This has led the government to educate Filipinos about the diseases that these insects are carrying and how to get rid of them. Here are some useful tips and pest control methods on how to drive mosquitoes away:
– Always start at home. House cleaning plays a big role in repelling mosquitoes. Always make sure that there are no stagnant waters throughout the house to avoid mosquitoes from reproducing.
– Install screen on windows to block mosquitoes from entering the house. This is one of the most easiest ways to prevent them from entering your house especially if there is an outbreak in your community.
– Work together with local officials in your community in conducting a clean-up drive. This will not only drive mosquitoes away but it can also prevent other pests from reproducing.
– If adult mosquitoes already abound, a professional village-wide pest control method may already be the best solution. But remember to still maintain the mosquito prevention methods listed above so that surges in mosquito populations do not recur.
These are some useful tips on how to drive mosquitoes away. However, consulting a pest control company will be your best choice to keep your house and loved ones safe from mosquito bites and its diseases.
