If you see your children suddenly rejoicing from out of nowhere at home, you might want to check outside, fellow mother. If it’s unnaturally hot and school’s out, you know what time it is: summer time! Your kids are definitely thinking about gimmicks with their friends, summer camps, every day visits to the malls, and similar activities.
But summer vacations aren’t just avenues to relax and enjoy. The intense heat and additional humidity draws mosquitoes and dengue. Yes, summer time is also dengue prevention month. As a not just a concerned mother, but a Filipino, you’ve got to spread the word to protect your fellow countrymen. Today, we’ll look at how you can do just that with social media, pest control here in the Philippines, seminars/reading, and cleanliness.
One of the first roles you can play in preventing the spread of dengue is an information dissemination. The easiest way to do that nowadays is to log on your social media account (like FB & Twitter), get articles from the Internet pertaining to dengue prevention, and share them on your news feed for everyone to see. Some of the resources you can take a look at are the Department of Health (DOH); and the Center For Disease Control (CDC).
Another role you can take is home protector. As the summer months draw on, you can expect mosquito presence to increase in and around your home. Your best tool against these winged pests is a professional exterminator service. Hire one like Topbest. They have experts who will fog, spray, and mist your home to keep those dengue-ridden mosquitoes away from your home.
If you don’t know anything about mosquitoes and dengue, then it’s time to put on your information seeker hat. As with the first role, you can find these kinds of seminars easily on the Internet. While you’re at it, spread the word on your social media accounts and invite your friends to join in, too!
Another way to do that is read up on pamphlets and articles you can find about the dreaded mosquito-borne disease. You’ll be arming yourself with vital information on how you can prevent dengue, which in turn will help you apply these in your personal life. Speaking of, one vital piece of information you can find is…
Dengue prevention is possible once you are able to adapt into the role of sanitation expert. A major mosquito (and dengue) magnet is any small body of water. These places serve as breeding grounds for new mosquitoes to come alive. In order to prevent the spread of dengue, you’ve got to eliminate water from catch basins and puddles outside your home and cover all water containers inside. Be sure to mop up any spoilt H20 as well, just to increase your chances.
We hope your children’s summer is fun and dengue free, as with your fellow Filipinos. If you know any other roles you can take to prevent the spread of dengue, let us know in the comments section below.
