Painted walls

Spraying mosquitoes

Spraying with insecticides or special insect poisons from the 6-month health department is very important to minimize the breeding of mosquitoes in the home and the surrounding environment so that the causes of dengue fever and malaria do not attack. The existence of consistent activities for spraying insects can be categorized as a feature of a healthy home, because the house is free from mosquitoes. As an alternative step, spraying can also be done with personal desire, namely to buy a mosquito sprayer and spray it when night falls.

There are no clothes hanging

Clothing that hangs behind a door or on an open wall is the most fertile place for mosquito mosquitoes to hide and can be a reservoir of dust. Clothing that piles up or hangs in large quantities and days apart from causing the view of the house to become unattractive can trigger female mosquitoes to gather and then look for locations that have water to lay eggs where the chosen location tends to be not far from the place where the clothes hang. 


The characteristic feature of a healthy home that is most easily seen is when any room of a house is free of some hanging clothes.
