THE MOSQUITO PEST.
Dr. Fenncll Writes About Dangers From
Mosquitoes at This Time of
Editor Advertiser: At this season of
the year the mosquito seems to be very
much in evidence and the peaceful slum
bers of our citizens are very much dis
turbed by this insect. A brief study of
this insect may not he out of order at
There are three kinds of mosquitoes:
the yellow fever mosquito, the house
mosquito and the malarial mosquito.
The life history of all three varieties
arc very similar. The female mosquito
deposits her eggs upon the surface of
any still water, as many as fiv i.undred
at a time. The eggs hatch out in two
days and in a few weeks the young
mosquitoes are full grown and ready
In a time like this, following the over
flow of so many streams, it is well that
we look to the health of our families
and wage a continual war upon the
mosquito. The malarial mosquito, es
pecially the female, is very poisonous.
The usual mode of infection of malaria!
fever is through the bite of this insect,
which acts as an intermediate host for
the malarial poison.
The two chief dangers that confront
us in this section are typhoid fever from
contaminated water and malarial fever
from the bites of mosquitoes.
Now as to the remedy:
Boil all water which is to bo used for
drinking purposes that is not pure. Al
low no water to remain in cellars; carry
off all mud and t rash and use lime freely.
Carefully inspect your premises and see
that there is no standing water. All
tubs and tin cans should be emptied.
Any stagnant water that cannot be
emptied should have enough kerosene
oil poured over it to cause a thin film
of oil over the surface of the water,
Kerosene is death to mosquitoes.
Any one suffering with malarial fever
should avoid being bitten by the use of
nets as the poison in this way can be
carried to healthy individuals.
The oil of penny royal, citronella and
alcohol will keep mosquitoes away.
These may be hail at any drug store.
