Dengue fever is a dangerous disease which can be caught through the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes inhabiting Africa, Australia, Central America and the Caribbean region, as well as Central Asia. There have also been cases of contamination in Hawaii. It’s hard to confuse the dengue fever carrier with anything else as these mosquitoes are of peculiar brown color with bright white marks on their legs and back.

The least pleasant thing is that there is no vaccine against this illness. In order to keep safe in potentially dangerous regions, make sure you strengthen your immune systems, drink vitamins, cover as much skin as possible and use mosquito repellents. Do not count on organic ones in this case and only use proven synthetic ones. You’ll be able to find the strongest DEET repellents in our review of 14 best mosquito repellents.
