Background: Dengue fever is an acutefbrile disease due to a viral infection and presents with severe headache, retro-orbital pain, muscular and joint pain as well as a rash. Therefore, the most important strategy in the prevention and control of dengue lies in the control of its vector, the Aedes mosquito. Due to the absence of a vaccine or a cure, the only effective measure available to prevent and control dengue is by preventing transmission of the disease by the Aedes mosquito.
