In fact, MPSJ (Subang Jaya Municipal Council) officers were going from house to house this morning and evening to check if there is any contained water that is breeding ground for aedes mosquitoes (the carrier of dengue fever). One will be charged with a summon of not more than RM500 if any larvae is found in the compound of his premise!
Dengue fever can be fatal. I had it 2 years ago and was hospitalized for a week. The doctor informed me that if I get dengue fever for the 2nd and 3rd time, it can be a matter of death then. So, I am all out on the war against aedes mosquitoes!!! Hope you gardeners out there, especially those in tropical countries, will keep a look out NOT to keep any clear stagnant water in your garden or house. Mosquitoes like to breed in this condition.
After 2 weeks, these are the seedlings that I got from those Marigold seeds. Now I simply sit back and wait for them to grow stronger and produce those vibrant Marigold flowers. At the same time, I hope they will help to deter mosquitoes from visiting my garden! You can try to plant some too! Do make sure you don't keep any clear stagnant water in your garden. Check those flower pot plates and any water features in your garden! Let's together wage a war against aedes mosquitoes!
