Usage of Repellent Products

Don't let mosquitoes bug you!

MATS

Heaters used in mosquito repellent work only for two years with good temperature (above 150 centigrade). To get better control, change the heater periodically Perfume added in repellent mats is used to indicate that the heater is switched on. Blue colour is added to differentiate between used and unused mates. If colour does not change, it indicates you heater is not giving the right temperature. Mats are effective ideally when room size is of 30 cum.

COILS

A 8-10 hour coil means the coil will burn effectively up to 8-10 hours when there is no airflow on the coil. Coil will burn for less duration if there is a breeze. Avoid keeping coils near any material that can catch fire. Always keep unused coils inside the pack. Avoid burning coils on a damp floor or places that are wet as it can absorb moisture and stop burning.

Growing mosquito repellent plants, helps in naturally protecting the area from mosquitoes and pests, thereby reducing incidence of mosquito-borne diseases. Growing plants help reduce carbon emissions, as well as mitigate the mosquito menace both indoors and outdoors. These pest repellent plants are easily available in any nursery or online shelves.

Mosquitoes are the number one enemy of public health because they are vectors of a lot of diseases such as malaria and dengue. That's why it is really important that we eradicate them. Numerous studies have been done against mosquitoes. There are insecticides and organic insecticides to kill them.

If mosquitoes can carry and transmit a virus the size of the Malaria virus, why do they not also carry and transmit a much smaller virus called HIV? Medicos poo poo this idea. If the insects don't transmit and carry Aids then should the filtering mechanism be closely studied?

ParasiteRex

First off malaria is a parasite, not a virus. The parasite goes developmental stages within the mosquitos gut. The parasite migrates to the mouthparts of the mosquito to be spread to another person. Viruses don't do this.

You first need to do is go to the hospital first as soon as possible then take some antibiotic medicine. First keep in your mind that clean your home from all poor insect control areas.
