Meanwhile, shares in home pesticide maker Fumakilla were up 22.85% at 430 yen on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. That follows a nearly 25% rise one day last week.

This is so sad

Fumakilla Malaysia Berhad manufactures and sells mosquito coils and other household insecticide products. It offers coil dishes, mosquito mats, insecticide aerosols, mat vaporizers, mosquito liquids, liquid vaporizers, and rodenticides. The company was founded in 1976 and is based in Perai, Malaysia.

So, you can buy various prevention products by Fumakilla in Tokyo, .

"So, you can buy various prevention products by Fumakilla in Tokyo," Or not. The focus of the infected mosquitoes is in the park in Tokyo, so all you want to do is keep away or prevent them from coming in, if you live around the area. This is scary, specially for the very young and very old, but there is no reason to panic. Well, not yet.

For outdoor activities this year, I've been carrying a small spray bottle filled with original formula Listerine and spraying as needed. Not a single mozzie has scored a bite. (Snopes has tried to debunk this, but it works for me.)

If you bathe, cover your own C02 trail with listerine for example, as above, wear light colours, you'll be much less likely to be bitten.

The main venue for anti-nuclear / anti-militarisation demonstrations, just happens to have been found to harbour DF. Hmmm...

Yoyogi Park is veryyy close to the OG venues.

Tears flowing here.

@Nipporinoel, common... Brazil has thousands of dengue fevers every year and the World Cup was hosted this year with no problem. To be more specific, more than one million affected in Brazil only in 2013 (and only aprox. 500 died).

Dont worry.

Ah, love it! It's the first outbreak of dengue in 70 odd years, but the positive is the pesticide companies are cleaning up. Ah, Japan! You'll never change!

I have a rock that keeps tigers away. I'd be willing to part with it for a small sum.

From a perusal of this Malaysia based company's financial returns, it appears that a majority financial stake is held by one Fumihiko Konishi.

oh boy it's all over Japan (Honshu), cases being reported from Osaka to Aomori.

Yes, but most (all?) of the people affected are believed to have visited Yoyogi koen.
