Early in the morning of September 25, 2010, about 30 residents in RW 04/ RT 03 Kelurahan Marga Jaya enthusiastically flocked to attend the dialogue with the advisor officers of Puskesmas Marga Jaya, Kec.

But if it was a dengue fever, the lives of patients may not be saved even on the next day, “said Mrs. Resti reminding the serious danger of dengue fever.

Dengue Fever Awareness Campaign is a social activity that was held AAM Bekasi Branch in cooperation with Dharma Dexa, MOSKY, and Terminix. Present on the occasion were AAM Bekasi team, DK Lambang (AAM Offices Bekasi), and Gwendoline Pranatalia (Dharma Dexa).

After the counseling, Terminix, pest control service provider, conducted the treatment of condensation (mist blower) to mosquito nest. Condensation method currently replaces fogging (fumigation) which has been commonly used. “Condensation is safer than fogging because it can reduce substance residue on kitchen appliances or eating utensils,” explained Mr. Trias, representative from Terminix.
