Use in Cuba for Fight Dengue Mosquito New Product, Patented by LABIOFAM Laboratories
The new product, patented by LABIOFAM Laboratories and made of natural substances, is called BACTIBE and biologically eliminates this mosquito, which affects around 50 million people in tropical areas of the world, according to the United Nations Organization.

The number of dengue cases in Central America and the Caribbean increases per day, and work has been done for several years to produce biological controllers of mosquitoes.

In Cuba, an ongoing country wide campaign against the Aedes Aegypti includes home fumigation, cleaning drains and eliminating water containers that favor the mosquito's reproduction, as well as educational TV programs to teach people how to identify and fight the mosquito.
