Dengue, the break bone fever 23.6.2017
The dengue fever has spread in Kerala just after the monsoon onset, which is alarming. The main reason is the sudden increase in the population of aedes aegypti, the day-biting mosquito. The threats from mosquitoes are manifold. They reduce real estate values, affect tourism and related business interests, besides impacting livestock and poultry production. Mosquitoes transmit dengue, malaria, filariasis, chikungunya, encephalomyeletis, zika, yellow fever etc. Mosquito behaviour Mosquitoes are insects showing crepuscular behaviour and conducting mass migration called swarming at dusk and dawn in places where human beings are located.
