First case has reached as far north as Taoyuan.

A lot of cases reported in the Philippines recently in the press …sorry double post .
Many cases in the, ah, Phillipines.
600 deaths already this year.
this is true, whatever area with standing water is where they reproduce
Well, they told us we have to throw the water out of our acuatic plants because of dengue.
Put tiny fish in the water, that is what many people do. They eat the bugs.
You want me to kill the fish, too?!
I second that. Try the Siamese Fighting fish, specially a female one. You don’t need to air the water for it and, if the aquarium is big enough, you don’t even need to filter it. Just buy the fish and some food.
They are carnivorous and will keep your aquarium free of bugs.
You can try a male too, but they are very eye-catching and will take the attention from the plant, which is the primary reason you’re buying it.
Another option is to place an air pump there. The mosquito likes stagnant water and won’t be able to place their eggs there.
Radio news this morning said they found one Dengue case in Daan district and that the person had been traveling in South Taiwan so they’re not sure where it came from. And they are cleaning n spraying the area.
Nice to see that the Taiwan government tries to stay on top of it and even get ahead of it.
