Rentokil's Mosquito Actuators provide 24 hour protection against mosquitoes

27 May, 2014

In May 2014, many Tanzanians have been admitted to hospitals following an outbreak of Dengue Fever. Dengue Fever is a painful, debilitating mosquito-borne disease caused by viruses related to the ones that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever.

The virus is transmitted by the bite of an Aedis mosquito infected with dengue virus. The mosquito becomes infected when it bites a person with dengue virus in their blood. The virus cannot be spread directly from one person to another.

Rentokil's Mosquito Actuators, that provide 24 hour protection against mosquitoes, have become popular with local residents who install the actuators to protect themselves from mosquitoes. The Mosquito Actuators provide 24 hour protection and are backed with pertinent Material Safety Data Sheets validating the safe use of the product.
