The onset of the wet season once again brings about heightened anxiety about the health hazards that come with it—particularly mosquito-borne diseases like dengue and Zika.
In the first six weeks of this year alone, the Department of Health (DOH) recorded a total of 10,980 dengue cases and 51 deaths from it, the highest incidence of which was reported in Calabarzon, Central Luzon, and Metro Manila.
Zika, although less prevalent than dengue, is an equally life-threatening disease that can be acquired through the same vectors of dengue—the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that prey on humans, day and night.
On that note, advocating the prevention is indeed better than cure. Trusted industry leader, Jardine Distribution, Inc. (JDI), urges homeowners to make use of available home pest solutions to safeguard their families from dengue and Zika, especially when the rains start to come.
JDI offers ZAP All Knockdown multi-insect killer that kills Aedes aegypti mosquitoes with its anti-dengue formula. Sourced from leading Japanese chemical firm Sumitomo Chemical, ZAP ensures fast knockdown power and long-lasting effects with its high-quality active ingredient. ZAP covers hard-to-reach areas and can likewise destroy other disease-carrying pests like cockroaches and flies that pose health hazards to family members.
Available in 300ml and 500 ml aerosol cans, ZAP is very easy and convenient to use and does not have an irritating smell.
Still another insidious disease to watch out for is leptospirosis, an infectious bacterial disease that may be acquired by wading in floodwaters contaminated by rodents’ urine. For the entire 2017, the DOH reported a total of 2,495 cases of leptospirosis and 261 deaths nationwide, an alarming 49.1-percent increase from the 1,673 cases recorded in 2016.
Homeowners can exterminate rats and mice in just one feeding with JDI’s Klerat. It contains Brodicacoum, a new generation high potency rat killer.
