Aedes mosquitoes are a genus of mosquito, primarily known for transmitting diseases such as dengue, Zika, and chikungunya. They are found in tropical and subtropical regions, and tend to breed in small, stagnant bodies of water such as flower vases, discarded tires, and water containers. Aedes mosquitoes are typically active during the day, and commonly bite humans.
To prevent the spread of diseases transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, it is important to eliminate sources of standing water and use mosquito repellents when spending time outdoors in affected areas. Governments and health organizations may also implement programs to control mosquito populations through the use of insecticides and other measures.
