Mosquitoes

Adult mosquitoes are slender, long-legged, two-winged insects. 

They undergo complete metamorphosis with four successive stages of development; eggs, larva, pupa and fully-grown adults. The first 3 stages are aquatic while the adult is an active flying insect.

Depending on the species of mosquito and environmental conditions such as temperature, light and food, the entire process from egg to adult takes around 7-14 days.

Types found in Singapore

  • Aedes Mosquito
  • Anopheles Mosquito

Prevention Advice

  • Watering cans and buckets should be properly stored. Placed them under shelter so they won’t gather rainwater.
  • Remove water stored in your potted plants and clean the baseplates of the pots thoroughly.
  • Loosen the soil from potted plants to prevent stagnant water from accumulating on the hardened soil’s surface.
  • Change the water in flower vases regularly and scrub their inner surfaces thoroughly.
  • If you are living in an apartment with common corridors, avoid blocking the water flow in the scupper drains. Do not place potted plants and other items over the scupper drain.
  • Do not place receptacles or trays on top of beneath any air conditioning units.
  • Clear stagnant water as well as fallen leaves in the scupper drain and garden on a regular basis.
  • Cover all sources of water. If you store water in your home, make sure you cover it properly.
  • Repair all water leaks as mosquitoes like to breed near sources of water.
  • If you have any water pans in your home or business premises to collect water from items such as air conditioning units then these must be cleaned regularly.
