Mosquito Fogging – EcoSpace Pest

Mosquito is one of the important pests in urban environment. Mosquito need water sources to reproduce. Female mosquito can lay up to 300 eggs singly on water surface. Only female mosquito bite and feed on blood for egg development. There are 3 most common mosquitoes that found in Singapore which are Aedes mosquito (Aedes aegypti & Aedes albopictus), Anopheles mosquito (Anopheles maculatus) and Culex mosquito (Culex quinquefasciatus). Aedes mosquitoes are vector of dengue, zika and chikungunya. Aedes mosquitoes normally bite during dawn and dusk. Anopheles mosquitoes are vector of malaria disease and are nocturnal biter. The peak biting time for Culex mosquito is between 2200 and 0200.

Sign of infestation

  • Mosquito bite sign on host
  • Mosquito larvae and pupae in stagnant water
  • Adult mosquito hovering around

Cause of mosquito infestation

  • Collection of stagnant water
  • Overgrown grass and bushes

What if not treated on time?

  • Disease transmission (Dengue, Zika, Yellow Fever)

Types of treatment

  • Search and destroy
  • Thermal fogging
  • Outdoor misting
  • Indoor misting
  • Larviciding

Treatment Approach

  • Initial pest infestation inspection
  • Identify the sources of infestation
  • Conduct larviciding to area of stagnant water
  • Conduct thermal fogging at surrounding area
  • Recommendation of structure improvement to further prevent water collection which provide breeding ground for mosquitoes

Preventive measure

  • Clean drains and roof gutters regularly and ensure there is no clogging and stagnant water
  • Dispose unwanted items that can collect water (leaves, plastic bottle)
  • Avoid using canvas sheets
  • Empty water from flower pot plates on alternate day
  • Change water in the vases or bowls on alternate day
