Fogging and dengue in Pulau Tikus?

The local council, MPPP, is fogging (spraying for mosquitos) every few days now.  It used to be once every few months.   Inspectors came around this morning to ensure there was no standing water in pots or buckets in  which mosquitos could breed. I am told that quite a few people in Tanjung Bungah have contracted dengue. It would seem there is a problem at the moment.

It has rained almost every day for the past two months, and the mosquitos are probably happy about that.

So it would appear to be a good time to take extra precautions against getting bitten.  And not to have any open containers outside that could be good for mosquitos.
