Prevention of Dengue

Checklist for a mozzie-free home:

AT ALL TIMES

☐ Turn pails and watering cans over and store them under shelter.

☐ Loosen soil from potted plants to prevent the accumulation of stagnant water on the surface of the hardened soil.

☐ Do not block the flow of water in scupper drains along common corridors in HDB estates. Avoid placing potted plants and other paraphernalia over the scupper drains.

☐ Cover rarely used gully traps. Replace the gully trap with non-perforated ones and install anti-mosquito valves

☐ Cover bamboo pole holders after use. Rainwater can potentially accumulate in these bamboo pole holders if they are uncovered and create a habitat.

☐ No tray or receptacles should be placed beneath and/or on top of any air-conditioning unit so as not to create a condition favourable for mosquito breeding.

EVERY OTHER DAY

☐ Remove water in plant pot plates. Clean and scrub the plate thoroughly to remove mosquito eggs. Avoid the use of plant pot plates, if possible.

☐ Change water in flower vases. Clean and scrub the inner sides of vases. Wash roots of flowers and plants thoroughly as mosquito eggs can stick to them easily.

ONCE A WEEK

☐ Clear fallen leaves and stagnant water in your scupper drains and garden. These leaves could collect water or cause blockages to the drains, thus resulting in the buildup of stagnant water.

☐ Clear any stagnant water in your air cooler unit.

ONCE A MONTH

☐ Add prescribed amounts of sand granular insecticide into vases, gully traps and roof gutters, even if they are dry. Please click here for the list of retailers who carry sand granular insecticides in their stores.

☐ Clear away fallen leaves in roof gutters and apron drains. If structurally feasible, remove the roof gutters.

SHRI SHANKARANJI,YOUR COMMENTS ARE IN TOTAL COMPLIANCE WITH ASTHANG YOG &
PRACTICING THEM IN LIFE IS VERY EASY THEY CAN TAKE YOU TO GODLY
LIVING.THANKS P.P.MEHTA. more  
Soon creatures like mosquito will form a UNION to protect their rights to live in this world and to have union of their 'Atma' with 'Paramatma'...... Nay they have already produced their new generations which can resist & overcome high dosage pesticides, anti-biotics, etc. ..... Where do we prefer to perform 'yogasans' - open grounds or closed rooms like the one suggested by Vikram sir?... For mosquito, etc. humans are pelting stones from(well secured) glass houses.....?! more  
Mr. Jalindar Ambekar has given very good suggestions, I would like to add two suggestions that while throwing or changing water from pots, you need to dispose it on soil where it will get absorbed and larva of mosquito will die. If you throw it sink then there is a chance of survival of larva in the water available to sustain its life and turn out into the adult mosquito.

Secondly all window doors of the home, office or any room need to be fixed with stainless steel wire net with small opening that will allow free air to pass through but not mosquitoes. more  
Cowardice is a situation of 'helplessness'.... violence is better than cowardice.... but NON-VIOLENCE is the supreme one.... I believe YOG is union of 'Atma' with Paramatma..... If violence is performed (even on creatures like mosquito), how can such Atma unite with Paramatma...? One may also believe, completely based on western science and Indian spirituality, that all objects - living and non-living - have a purpose of their living... which may at times, be unacceptable to 'socialized' human beings. more  
JALINDERJI,YOUR SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATION WILL DEFINATELY REDUCE
MOSQUITO BREEDING & HARBOURING PLACES.THANKS P.P.MEHTA
