This monsoon, stay away from malaria and other diseases...

Chasing away mosquitoes during the monsoon season is essential to avoid malaria.

Tips to keep mosquitoes at bay

Ensure that you limit outside activity between dusk and dawn.

Stay indoors as much as you can

Avoid places where mosquitoes breed easily. Ensure that all waste or garbage is covered and disposed of every day to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes.

Ensure there is no stagnant water in or around the house. Open drains, shallow pools of water, air cooler water, etc., are major breeding areas.

Keep underground and overhead tanks covered and clean, both before and after the monsoons.

Mosquito nets are advisable, especially in areas with a heavy monsoon.

Wear protective clothing - long-sleeved shirts & pants or salwar kameez sets will protect you from mosquito bites.

Use mosquito repellant creams or, sprays, and coils or mats/liquidators regularly.
