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.
