Disease Guide

The persistent buzz of a mosquito in the home can be infuriating. Not to mention the itchy bite it gives you if it manages to escape your frantic attempts at swatting them away. As well as this, in India and other parts of the world, mosquito bites can have deadly consequences. Some mosquitoes are vectors that carry and transmit infectious pathogens that lead to debilitating diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, chikungunya and others.

A key factor in preventing against mosquito-borne diseases is to be aware of the ways in which mosquitoes breed in our communities and enter our homes. It is also important to be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of the diseases spread by mosquitoes, which is where the articles below will come in handy.

We cover the basics of some common mosquito-borne diseases to help you understand more about the types of mosquitoes that transmit these diseases, how to guard against them, and how to treat the disease should you get infected. By using the information contained in these guides, the latter is hopefully a situation you will never have to face!
