In the last few weeks, I've heard there has been an outbreak of Dengue Fever in the US Virgin Islands. Dengue is a mosquito born disease that is extremely painful, you can read about the symptoms HERE.

The way that we control mosquitos around our house is with a Mosquito Larvae Trap (MLT). It's a really simple device that contains water where the mosquitos lay their eggs in the evenings and during the day the solar arm is activated and exposes the eggs to the sun where they dry out and die. The only thing you need to do is make sure it always has water and is placed in the sunshine. The other really important factor is to make sure that it is the only water source available around your home so that the mosquitos will be attracted to it. We have had it for a couple of years now and highly recommend that everyone gets one!

 I wish everyone with Dengue a speedy recovery!!!

You can order your own MLT on this site HERE.

  1. A dengue outbreak is always alarming. Good thing devices like this and other mosquito eliminator has been invented; it really helps us to eliminate mosquitoes for good. With the campaigns and preventions continue to spread out, I hope the number of people who got dengue will reduce. - Maurise Gelman @ MosquitoSquad.com

  2. More than this tool, I think it would also be for the best to conduct mosquito extermination every once in a while. It would also be helpful to have mosquito-repellent plants like lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus around places that are prone to mosquito infestation.
