There is no activity of the corporation in controlling mosquitoes. The way ward-based mosquito eradication workers have worked to control the Aedes mosquito carrying the dengue virus is no longer as active as it used to be. Mosquito infestation at this time of the year is causing additional fear to the city dwellers.

The city dwellers also complained about the role of the two city corporations in controlling this problem. Urbanists also say that the two agencies have failed in controlling mosquitoes.

Culex mosquito breeding season from December to March of the year. Entomologists say the responsibility for controlling the Culex mosquito infestation lies with the two city corporations, not the city dwellers. This is because the breeding grounds of Culex mosquitoes are in stagnant water. And in Dhaka city it is the responsibility of two city corporations to clean it. If these activities can be managed properly, Culex mosquito infestation will be under control. The higher authorities must also pay attention to whether the authorities engaged in emergency work such as mosquito eradication are performing their duties properly.
