Top 5 reasons Why Mosquito Bites (and you need more than a mosquito trap)

  1. Female mosquitoes need blood to help develop their eggs
  2. It is close to dawn or dusk- the peak feeding time
  3. The heat and carbon dioxide you give out is greater
  4. You have just exercised
  5. You are wearing darker clothings which provide a better contrast for landing cue

 

Lightweight and small, yet Mosquitoes are known as the world’s most deadliest pest. Capable of spreading diseases such as the Dengue Fever and Zika Virus with just one infected bite, humans are finding themselves engaging in a long-time battle with these pesky fellas.

Did You Know? Mosquitoes can’t see very well and they rely on their sense of smell to locate hosts.

Citronella, a common ingredient found in most mosquito repellent sprays and stick-on patches can help to repel mosquitoes because it irritates their feet.

 

Here are some simple DIY tips you can bring protection home for your family:

  • Install mosquito netting
  • Apply insect repellant
  • Wear long-sleeved clothing
  • Clear stagnant water; remove breeding sources
  • Keep the room cool

Many of the mosquito breeding sites in Singapore are found in residential homes. Home owners should step up vigilance in removing breeding sources to effectively stop the vicious cycle. To deal with this tough pest, you need more than an indoor mosquito trap in place.

While home care serves to prevent and protect your family and loved ones from mosquitoes, professional help for enhanced protection can be done to further control indoor and outdoor mosquito population and breeding.
