"Aedes Albopictus and Aedes Aegypty have been detected in the pre-urban areas of the capital," Yadav told reporters here Tuesday.

"While Aegypty is an in-house species and easy to control through fumigation, it is difficult to control Albopictus which develops outside," he said.

He said that symptoms of the disease are the same, after a bite from either species of mosquito.
