Aedes Mosquito Case Study
Table 4.9: Result of simple linear regression between level and ovitrap index
Level b (95% CI) p-value -2.5 (-7.7, 2.9) 0.236
R2 = 0.421. The model not fit well: Model assumption are not met
There is statistically no significant linear relationship between level and ovitrap index (p= 0.236).
The increase of the multi –storey house level is not associated with the ovitrap index level.
With level, the model explains 42% of variation of the ovitrap index level on the study sample. (r2 = 0.421)

5.1 Background Previously, it has been known that the Aedes mosquito flight range is less than 200m but now the mosquito …show more content…
According to Guzman et al. 2003, the vector control program is basically grounded on source reduction, removing larval habitats of Aedes mosquito from domestic surroundings. Three methods that suitable to control the dengue are through chemical control, biological control and physical control (source of reduction methods). These controls are carried out concurrently based on the environment of breeding …show more content…
In our country, Malaysia, the community can be acknowledge and motivated through participating in the Aedes control programmes. Moreover, the health education altogether with the proper enforcement of the law will be an effective tools to prevent the the breeding of Aedes in Malaysia. The community participation in the activities such as ‘gotong royong’, health exhibition, distribution of fliers, seminar, workshop and related courses is the example of health education among the community. These activities can rise up the community awareness thus, affecting the behavioural of the community. According to Yoshikawa, 2013, the 10 minutes campaign was done in Singapore to educate the public. The campaign was done by distributing the pamphlets to the residents so that they can check and remove the stagnant water within their
