Aedes Albopictus Mosquito causes dengue and dengue haemorrhagic fever. It breeds in small openings, leaf axils, flower and plants pots, discarded tyres, old oil drums, animal drinking water pots and potentially in stagnant and all water storage containers near human dwellings.
Aedes albopictus mosquito bites during day unlike the malaria mosquito.
