2018: Dengue fever figures on the increase

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

That's true. One of the most prolific breeding sites are tires. Moto, auto, truck, doesn't matter. They are everywhere you look around here. I scoured my own property yesterday after the missus complained & found a small container I use for germanating seeds had been wind blown under cover & it had at least a 100 larvae of 1 thru 4 instar. No more than 20cc water & some plant debris. Doesn't take much.

i leave a container with standing water near my place all the time, so that it will attract mozzies to lay eggs in it, just make sure to clear it frequently :D

Some dumbass said there was a cholera epidemic in SHV this week. Said his girlfriend told her the doctors said they were treating “100s” for it.

Load of rubbish. Apparently the barang dude doesn’t even live here so she’s probably scamming him for some extra cash! Lol.

If the water wasn’t there in the first place the mozzies wouldn’t be there.

Are they Barang mozzies?
That there is the problem, obviously.

But anyway, existing mozzies will lay their eggs somewhere, so the cunning plan is to encourage them to lay in your perfect nest, which you then destroy.

Getting rid of standing water will end their proliferation in that area. If there’s no standing water there will be no mosquitoes, or at least no breeding mosquitoes.

If everyone followed your logic there’d be shit loads of mosquitoes flying around, attracted by a perf cr place, breeding, and feeding, so they can make more babies.

Good luck with that.

Hello, you change out the water in your honey-pot regularly enough that the larvae never have a chance to hatch.
