Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are unwanted in an urban city.

They are a threat to human as they are vectors of diseases. Mosquitoes are extremely fast in spreading Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya and Zika.

It is always a challenge to manage mosquitoes. There are about 80 different kinds of mosquitoes in Singapore.

These pests are part of the same order as houseflies and fruit flies. They all have two clear veined wings.

The length of the mosquito life cycle varies between species and is dependent upon environmental conditions.Under optimal conditions, mosquitoes can develop from egg to adult in an average of 7 days.

Potential Mosquito Breeding Ground

Common mosquito breeding sites include flower pots, roof gutters, bird baths, ponds, gully trap, roof gutter and etc.

You can also keep mosquitoes away from you and your home by using bug lights or netting and barriers.

Plant axils

Planter boxes

Roof gutters

Floor Traps

Our mosquito management approach

Our approach is  to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.The methods used are Fogging, Misting, Larviciding and Bti Treatment.

Source reduction should also be practised by removing any potential stagnant water locations and discard any unwanted items where stagnant water is found.

Adulticiding

Fogging being carried out during an outbreak.

Water Based Misting for barrier control

Larviciding

Source reduction is the most effective method in mosquito management.

A combination of biological control and application of the right product to eliminate the mosquito larvae/ breeding source is a crucial part in mosquito management.

For locations sensitive to fish, aquatic life, plants and pets we recommend application of Bti treatment.

Bti Treatment

“Bti”, Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies Israelensis, are bacteria which will kill mosquito larvae.

When Bti is consumed by the mosquito larvae, Bti affects their digestive system and thus kill them.

Bti is available in forms of wettablegranulesand tablets. It is usually applied either directly or by spraying from mist sprayer/ blower or truck mounted ultra-low-volume (ULV) generator.
