Where does the mosquito breed?
Dengue mosquitoes breed in stored, exposed water collection systems. The favoured breeding places are:
Barrels, drums, jars, pots, buckets, flower vases, plant-pots, tanks, discarded bottles, tins, tyres, water coolers and a lot more places where rain water is collected or is stored.
The styles (needle-like structures) and proboscis (elongated mouth) of an Aedes aegypti feeding. Dengue viruses are transmitted during the feeding process.
