Protection For Malaria and Dengue Fever
-> Wear long pants and sleeves at dawn and dusk
-> Use mosquito repellent containing DEET
-> Use a permethrin impregnated mosquito net
-> If you are prone to being bitten, lean towards accommodation that can be sealed e.g air-con with no slatted windows nor open eaves.
-> Watch out for rooms with bucket showers/toilets. These tend to have buckets of stagnant water (a mosquito’s beach resort) in the bathroom.
-> Use mosquito coils or other anti-mosquito devices (e.g.., citronella) as a secondary control.
