How To Prevent The Spread Of Malaria?
World Malaria Day - April 25, 2019:
Summer provides all the joys of warm weather. Swimming, fishing, hiking and backyard parties are the rage. But summer also comes with the familiar battle between humans and mosquitoes. There are many safe and natural ways to keep them away from you. But such methods are not used often. Certainly, chemical products fill the market from top to bottom. No matter how toxic they are to humans, we keep buying them. On Malaria Day let us learn to do better. There are many facts about the disease that remains unknown. Hence, knowledge of these facts is the first step to prevent the disease.
So, malaria is a disease that’s spread only by the female Anopheles Mosquito. But we can't be sure of the type of mosquito as it flies around. So it is wise to avoid mosquito bites as a whole.
Why only female anopheles mosquito causes Malaria ("World Malaria Day")?
Malaria stems from a one-celled parasite. Female Anopheles mosquitoes pick up the parasite from infected persons. Then they bite to get the blood needed to nurture their eggs. Inside the mosquito, the parasites develop and reproduce. When the mosquito bites again, the parasites pass into the human blood through its saliva. Studies have found that male anopheles mosquito contains beneficial bacteria. It kills the harmful organisms which enter the male mosquito. This is absent in the female. Hence they cause dangerous diseases.
Malaria is generally characterized by the following signs:
- Poor appetite
- Trouble Sleeping
- Fever and chills
- Muscle pain
- Breathing trouble.
- Abnormal bleeding
“Maybe, malaria can be dangerous to live without treatment.”
How can we control the spread of Malaria?
Increasing awareness about the disease makes people more cautious. This will control the spread of malaria.
- Remove standing water from areas near your home or office.
- These mosquitoes are more active during dusk and dawn hours. So, try to stay indoors during these hours.
- Wear loose trousers instead of shorts. Wear shirts with long sleeves.
- While stepping out during dusk or dawn, apply herbal mosquito repellent body spray before going out.
- Herbal Strategi Indoor/Outdoor-Cold/Thermal Fogging is also recommended.
How can you prevent Malaria through natural methods?
Many products on the market claim different things. They use all kinds of dangerous chemicals to make us buy them. They try to prevent you from becoming a mosquito’s next meal. But are these products effective?
All the products contain DEET as the main ingredient. What is DEET? Why is it used here?
It is a chemical that repels mosquitoes with its smell. Also, DEET harms humans too. They irritate the mucous membranes and cause skin reactions. Even more, burning eyes, breathing difficulties and headaches occur to some people. Exposure for a long duration is toxic for life. Hence, they are harmful to humanity. What we buy to kill mosquitoes only kills us. Urgent replacements have become a need.
Scientists have done many trials to replace DEET. But only one natural source has shown promise. Oil of lemon eucalyptus performs as good as DEET.
