Dengue fever is one of the cold-blooded killers in the community, not least in Indonesia. Usually this type of mosquito will roam in the rainy season like now. Even, the flight range can reach 1 Kilometer. It’s just that the community is indeed lack of knowledge about this dengue fever. Therefore, we describe the following characteristics of dengue mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes’ body, color and shape
The easiest way to recognize the type of dengue mosquito is to observe the shape and color of the mosquito. DHF mosquitoes tend to be small and black with white stripes (stripes) all over the body. This mosquito has the ability to fly as high as 100 meters, which is what makes the spread of the power quite far.
Dengue mosquitoes also have a schedule for biting our blood, tend to occur in the morning, two hours after sunrise, and two hours before sunset. Dengue mosquitoes sometimes bite without your knowledge because these mosquitoes usually bite from the back of your body and towards your ankles and elbows. What to watch out for, mosquito bites rarely cause pain and tenderness.
In fact, Dengue Fever Mosquitoes avoid dirty and dirty places, they actually like to breed in clean, clear water places such as bathtubs, flower vases and the like. They also sometimes can breed in the wild such as the armpit of leaves, and the like.
This contradicts the community’s assumption that dengue mosquitoes are usually found in turbid or dirty water. Actually, DHF mosquitoes also like to breed in damp and tend to be dark.
Mosquito larvae pattern
In addition to the characteristics of dengue mosquitoes, it is also very important to know the characteristics of larvae, because eradicating larvae also means preventing dengue mosquitoes from roaming. When you check the tub or other shelter, dengue mosquito larvae usually move actively from the bottom to the surface of the water repeatedly. If found, drain your bathtub immediately, to prevent them from turning into larvae and becoming deadly mosquitoes later.
