Last updated on: November 18, 2016 12:29 IST

Dengue strikes again and it is deadlier this time! It is one of the most common diseases caused by a mosquito called 'Aedes Aegypti'. Did you know that the most common breeding ground for these mosquitoes is stagnant water stored in and around your house? Well, it is extremely essential to keep your house mosquito proof this season. Here are a few tips to follow on a daily basis to keep dengue at bay -

#1 Dengue mosquitoes enter your house during day time. Hence, you must keep the doors and windows closed to prevent the entry of the mosquitoes. Use a mosquito net on your windows to block the mosquitoes and not the ventilation.

#2 Use a highly efficient mosquito killer. Place a mosquito killer and keep your house mosquito proof. You can also choose a mosquito killer with an inbuilt night lamp as light attracts mosquitoes.
