Mosquitos everywhere

Postby A better tomorrow » Wed Feb 26, 2014 10:31 pm

Since the end on cny till now, I have killed at least 20 Mosquitos and have seen ( they were lucky and got away ) about 10 or so mosquitoes
Wonder if anybody is having this problem too and how to solve it . The Mosquitos are disturbing and biting my dds, and me almost every night and I have to get up to kill them . :sad:
I have finished using about 2-3 bottles of insecticide but nothing is stopping them! :stompfeet: :frustrated: :cry:

Try to get hold of the SAF mozzie repellent and dab sparingly , few spots near sleeves and hem of clothes. Hear it's rather effective.

My house is ambushed with 'biting midges'. It looks and behaves like mosquitoes but does not spread disease like malaria. My neighbours are also facing same problems. It's really a nightmare as they attack in the night hours. Not too sure what is the root cause or where they come from though.

I thought it was the eau de NSman that keeps the mozzies away.

Dry weather encourages mosquitoes...have been spraying insecticide often too. Burning coils but putting them in places which I will not smell directly.

Mosquito screens installed at windows and doors are highly effective, and widely used in Malaysia. It's a mystery why they are not more popular in Singapore. The more expensive fine ones can even keep out midges.

Once installed, you only need to swat the occasional mozzie that flies in when you open the door to go in or out.

mosquitoes must be man-hungry now :evil: even my hubby gets bitten when usually he 'escapes'...when I used to complain about being bitten he said he doesn't have any mozzie bites.

I had HUGE mosq problem during CNY period too, and i concluded that it was due to a neighbour going abroad and leaving his yard toilet uncovered, therefore allowing the mosqs to breed. On CNY eve and first day, me, DS and nephew killed 11 mosqs...

The situation has been much improved ever since my neighbour came back home...

My advice: call NEA and inform them. They will go and check. But make sure you do not have any breeding sites inside your house first hor...
