Did you know that you live (and sleep) with your worst enemy? Our biggest predator is not the great white shark, but the mosquito. The most dangerous species can even cause death.
They may be tiny, but mosquitoes are terrific enemies. They don’t play by the rules and have no respect for curfews. They are watching when you sleep, they are watching you when you are relaxing… waiting to sting mercilessly every centimetre of bare skin, steal your blood and cause intense itching.
The less harmful ones
All mosquitoes are not dangerous. But they are ALL excessively annoying, and their bites can be very unpleasant for some. Fresh tourists, arriving for their holidays are the first victims (just one look at their calves is enough to have a fair estimation of the damage). Mosquitoes are real party spoilers and can ruin even the most perfect night in a 5-star hotel. These little winged vampires are particularly fond of children and can turn their peaceful night into a horrible nightmare. In the smallest houses to the biggest luxury hotels, no one is safe from this bloodthirsty pest. There’s no time-out from them. Some mosquitoes attack mainly at night, while others bite all day.
The public enemy number 1
Mosquitoes are suspected to be responsible for more than two million deaths each year, making them our number one enemy. Since they fly from one human to the next to feed on their blood, mosquitoes are the best-known disease vector. Indeed, when they bite a sick person, they become infected and then transmit the virus to each new person they sting. Among the major diseases they transmit are dengue, chikungunya, and malaria. Since the beginning of the year, the number of dengue cases in Mauritius hasn’t ceased to increase. To date, the authorities have officially registered 31 cases, including 26 at Vallée des Prêtres.
The tiger mosquito
How to recognize the “bad” guys? Recognizable by the black and white stripes on the surface of its body and legs, the tiger mosquito (Aedes Albopictus) is among the most dangerous. It is able to transmit to man serious diseases like dengue and chikungunya. The worst is that it is an urban mosquito that lives near us: in our homes, in our gardens, on our terraces, and on our balcony. That is why it is essential to take the necessary measures to protect yourself.
How to protect yourself?
Mosquitoes need moisture to grow because their larvae reside in stagnant water. Our tropical climate is amazingly perfect to promote their rapid proliferation. To prevent the tiger mosquito and its congeners from reproducing quickly, empty anything that holds small amounts of water. Whether it’s water from vases or gutters, inspect thoroughly your home and garden and get rid of any standing water. It is also essential to maintain your garden and trim tall grass, bushes, and hedges.
