The larvae of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, responsible for dengue fever, were found at a house in Police Line area during an inspection drive here on Thursday.
According to officials, despite various awareness programmes initiated by the health department, larvae of the dangerous mosquito are found every year in the area.
District epidemiologist Dr Anil Verma said the larvae were destroyed and the municipal corporation (MC) has further been advised to take appropriate action.
Verma also advised residents not to keep containers and tyres on roof tops, as water accumulated in these can cause invites dengue.
He also appealed to residents to clean their coolers once a week to avoid breeding of mosquitoes.
