Yes, this was new information to me - in my case, the video kept stopping,
so I'm not sure I got it all. A Wikipedia article says:

"Aedes aegypti prefers to lay its eggs in artificial water containers,
to live in close proximity to humans, and to feed on people rather than
other vertebrates.[23]"

So this is really good information - that we need to do a scan of our
environment every day, looking for standing water in anything even as
small as a bottle cap, I guess.

I didn't see any reference
to papaya leaf juice, coconut water or carambola in the Wikipedia article
as one of the management techniques. Anybody know how to add that?
