Eliminating the Culprit

June 22nd, 2013 | Posted by Editor in Health

The government is doing its best to protect the citizens. The NEA (National Environment Agency) specifically released dengue prevention guidelines. NEA also added three hundred more health officers to inspect and check households and its surroundings. Health officers are quite helpful when it comes to searching mosquito habitats. Health officers need to conduct house to house inspections in order to do their job.


When health officers knock at your doctor, you should welcome them and assist them. The government is not only responsible for dengue prevention because the public is encouraged to join the force. If all join hands, dengue prevention is possible. The first thing that you should do is get rid of mosquito population. By getting rid of it, you will lessen their existence. Here is an updated list of NEA’s guidelines:

Change water

If you have vases and bowls, make sure to change it every other day to get rid of mosquito eggs.

Remove water

If you have flower pots, make sure to remove water every other day.

Turn over

If you have pails, automobile tires and other containers, you should turn it over after use or you can consider covering it.


You should make sure to cover pole holders after every use.

Clean blockages

You should clean blockages. Make sure to take away leaves as it may cause blockage. You should also apply BTI insecticide in gutters regularly.

NEA calls this guideline “Do the Mozzie Wipeout”. If you are vigilant, you can protect your household and the whole of the community. It is important that you implement the guidelines and stay faithful to it. Dengue can be serious if not taken care of. Do your best to reduce the population of mosquitoes.
