Dengue Inspection

Today we had a Dengue inspection to make sure our yards were not full of water collectors where mosquitoes lay eggs. This was not the usual young kids with bags of mosquito poison to dump in every receptacle including the well ... but just an inspection. I don't gather junk around the house like some in the neighborhood so I WON a certificate that we are Dengue free. Now I just hope the mosquitoes can read.

Scott -- I think I have had more mosquito bites here in Oregon this summer than I experienced during the last two visits in Melaque.

Just come down November thru April and no mucho problema. Otherwise have screens, repellent and watch you hours outside

And hopefully those tiny black no see 'ums can read too!

Actually fleas are my problem this year. I have 3 cats and this is the first time they've gotten them. Had to fumigate as I was getting bit too

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
