Their advantage point is their size. Since they are small, they can easily move around without being noticed. And just like ants, they work as a team too. This is what causes an epidemic such as dengue, zika, and many others. So in order to protect ourselves and the ones we love, we have to observe precautionary measures such as the following:

  1. 1. Clean your surroundings.
  2. 2. Turn over stagnant water and put antimos in watery spots.
  3. 3. Spray insect repellents in potential mosquito hideouts
  4. 4. Wear long bright clothing
  5. 5. Apply Zip Insect Repellent Lotion to ward off attacking mosquitoes

These steps can greatly help you prevent a loved one from lying in a hospital bed in pain and you being helpless about whether or not he or she will make it because the truth about dengue is that it can affect all ages from young to old.
