ADVISORY NOTICE

Mosquitoes Breeding Prevention

http://www.nea.gov.sg/dengue-zika/prevent-aedes-mosquito-breeding

The viruses that causes dengue fever and Zika are carried by the Aedes mosquito. As the bite of an infective Aedes mosquito spreads diseases, it is crucial to prevent its breeding. The Aedes mosquito is easily identifiable by the distinctive black and white stripes on its body. It prefers to breed in clean, stagnant water easily found in our homes. You can get rid of the Aedes mosquito by frequently checking and removing stagnant water in your premises.

Find out what you can do to prevent Aedes mosquitoes from breeding in your home.
