Dengue fever is making a stellar comeback this year in Thailand. In the meantime, I’ve been keeping little guppies and bettas in and around my house to reduce/eradicate the mosquito population.
Plus, I like fishes and plants and flowers. So it’s a win-win-win situation (in the words of Michael Scott). Lizards of all varieties also eat mosquitoes. So it’s important to keep these little guys around! Much better than spraying pesticides in the air.
And remember to throw out standing water! A breeding ground for mozzies to lay their eggs.
