Integrated Mosquito Management

Are you afraid of mosquitoes? Humans are afraid of mosquitoes mainly because they do not want to result in getting sick from mosquito bites. Most commonly found in Singapore, the Aedes mosquito is a carrier of the dengue virus. The dengue virus is able to cause dengue fever when an infected Aedes mosquito bites a person. The virus is then passed on to the person during a blood meal, which only female mosquitoes require to reproduce and lay its eggs.

Why should you keep protecting yourself from mosquitoes? When you reduce the chance of getting mosquito bites, you greatly reduce the chance to get dengue. Do not be slack against mosquitoes.

Mosquitos spread avoidable diseases such as Zika, Dengue and Malaria

Mosquito bites

Mosquito-borne diseases are an area of concern in Singapore. While Singapore has seen outbreaks of Zika, the two diseases of major concern are: malaria and dengue. Mosquitoes are also the highest source of vector borne diseases in Singapore (other vectors include rats, rat fleas, cockroaches & flies).

Densely-packed populations make some parts of Singapore very susceptible to the outbreak of mosquito-borne diseases. Additionally, the primary vector of dengue, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, is very well-adapted to urban environments, preferring to breed, mate and feed near human dwellings.

Conventional mosquito control methods used indoors and outdoors can have limitations

Limited protection

Conventional mosquito control methods do not offer 24-hour protection.

Limited effectiveness

Fogging alone is not enough to control mosquito population.

Harmful to the environment

Mosquito repellent sprays may be harmful to insects and animals.

Exposure to pesticide and chemicals

Solutions such as mosquito coils may contain harmful ingredients.

All you need to know about mosquito control


  • How do I get rid of mosquitoes in Singapore?

    The best way to get rid of mosquitoes is to eliminate sources of stagnant/standing water in your homes as they can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. This means emptying buckets, pot plates, and clearing roof gutters. Be sure to install window screens to prevent mosquitoes from flying inside and feasting on you for a blood meal. If you still happen to find mosquitoes in your premises, you may be suffering from an infestation. Therefore, you should contact a professional pest control service that can provide expert mosquito control solutions to get rid of them.


  • How do you keep mosquitoes from biting you?

    Besides keeping your home free of stagnant water which prevents mosquitoes from entering your premises in the first place, you can also spray mosquito repellent and stick mosquito patches onto your skin to keep mosquitoes from biting you. However, the efficacy of repellents and patches will reduce over time, which means that you will have to keep reapplying them.


  • How can we identify dengue mosquitoes?

    The dengue mosquito is actually called the Aedes Aegypti and they are easily identified by the black and white stripes on their bodies.


  • Do all mosquitoes carry the dengue virus?

    No. Only the Aedes mosquito carries the virus for dengue fever. However, other mosquito species might carry other types of viruses and diseases, which is why we should be diligent about ensuring that our premises remain mosquito-free.


  • Where does the dengue mosquitoes live?

    While they originated from Africa, the dengue mosquito has spread to many other tropical and subtropical countries and requires a warm and humid environment for their growth and development. This is why they are common in Singapore.


  • What happens when a dengue mosquito bites?

    When a dengue mosquito bites a person with dengue fever, it becomes infected with the disease. As such, when it bites another person and sucks their blood, the dengue mosquito will transmit the disease to them via their saliva. Once the mosquito saliva enters the person's bloodstream, the person becomes infected and develops dengue fever symptoms.
