There are two things that
As reported by NEA (National Environment Agency) on <Include date of article>, there is a surge of dengue transmission during the warmer months in Singapore.
Also, there’s an alarming rise of the Aedes aegypti mosquito population to 30% in April 2021, as compared to January 2021 this year.
Here we’ll show you why dengue is a serious health problem and how you can defend your home and office from these pests.
Dengue is caused by a virus that you can get from the bite of an Aedes mosquito. The symptoms of dengue usually last for two to seven days. This infection can cause a serious, flu-like illness among individuals.
What’s worse, people are more likely to develop severe dengue if they have had dengue before and get infected again. This can result in shock, internal bleeding, and life-threatening.
Unfortunately, there’s no known cure for dengue and that’s why prevention is still the best medicine. Here are the risk areas in your home and office that you need to be aware of.
Stagnant water and areas with poor drainage are mosquitoes’ favourite breeding spots. That means they can reproduce anywhere, including your home and office! Take note of these common places where mosquito breeding can take place:
Many Singaporeans have plants in their homes. But if stagnant water is in pots and trays for weeks or months, it can be a prime breeding spot for mosquitoes.
Bathrooms and toilets can contribute to mosquito breeding because there is plenty of moisture or standing water available for eggs to hatch.
Mosquitoes love clogged drains, gutters, and drainage pipes as these make an ideal habitat for them to breed and hide.
Your pet’s water bowl is an open invitation for mosquitoes. Any undisturbed water, when left for a long time, is a comfortable place for mosquitoes to lay their eggs.
Removing stagnant water is one of the simplest steps to prevent dengue. There are, however, more effective strategies to safeguard your home and office from mosquitoes.
Your best bet to guarantee that your home and office are protected from dangerous mosquitoes is to seek professional help.
PestBusters is the leading expert when it comes to dengue prevention services in Singapore. Here are our proven methods to eliminate mosquitoes for your peace of mind:
One of the best ways to control mosquito population is to target their breeding grounds with larvicides. These work by killing mosquito larvae before they can grow into biting adults.
BTI is a biological agent which is used in mosquito control for killing mosquito larvae effectively. BTI is low toxicity but it can kill mosquitoes efficiently within a day. Plus, BTI has no toxicity to people and is approved for use in pest and mosquito control.
Misting is a safer alternative to fogging where a thin mist of environmentally friendly and weather-proof chemical coats the plants without harming them. Since mosquitoes feed on plant saps, the chemical, once ingested, will eventually kill them.
Ensuring the safety of your family and employees is our highest priority.
