There is nothing as annoying as those pesky mosquitoes buzzing in your ears day in and day out and even throughout the night, knowing soon there will be fresh red rash on your exposed skin. Not only are these pesky mosquitoes annoying, but also dangerous – causing deadly diseases like dengue and chikungunya, not to forget other diseases like malaria, Japanese encephalitis and yellow fever.

1. Use indoor repellents throughout the day

This is extremely important, Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads dengue and chikungunya usually bites in the daytime, hence it is important that you keep the mosquito repellent on throughout the day.

4. You can use window screens and bed nets to protect you
