These treatments against the proliferation of mosquitoes are essential to fight against dengue fever and must be accompanied by preventive measures implemented by the population of Reunion.
Recommendations to fight against dengue
Eliminate breeding sites: empty anything that may contain water all around your home
Consult a doctor in case of symptoms: fever, headache, muscle / joint pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue …
Protect yourself and those around you against mosquito bites
