journalists short on shock value subjects may write, deseases like
dengue or chicungunia kill proportionally far less in the French Antilles
than the flu does in Europe or North America. There is no indication

Our mosquito in Guadeloupe, the Aedes-aegypti needs your blood to reproduce.That is why only the female bites.
It is mostly diurnal and active at dusk and dawn.
It localizes its victims by the CO2 they expel, body odors and infra red radiations.
If it bites you it will inject a blood thinner to make its task easier
The itching is nothing but your body allergic reaction against the l'anticoagulant's DNA.
Aedes-aegypty only reproduces in stagnant water and it takes 6 days for
the larvae to become a mosquito. If you empty your flower vases every 5
days you will contribute to the fight against mosquitoes. It does
not move more than 100 meters from its birth place by its own
In Guadeloupe we say that we have the mosquitoes that we raise.
