What can I do to reduce the spread of the Aedes mosquitoes in my community?

Aedes mosquitoes live in a wide range of different environments. The presence of water is of great importance for their breeding as the mosquito eggs require water in order to develop into adult mosquitoes. It is important that everybody takes action to avoid water gathering in containers especially in the vicinity of the house, such as left-over water in flower pots/plant saucers, wading pools, drain pipes, and watering cans. Also, there are barrels, buckets, jars, bird baths, wheelbarrows, tree holes, tins, tires, fish ponds and trash cans that are breeding sites for Aedes mosquitoes.
