Mosquito Pest Control in Singapore
The 3 most common groups of mosquitoes in Singapore are:
- Aedes Mosquito (Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus)
- Anopheles Mosquito (Anopheles maculatus, Anopheles sundaicus)
- Culex Mosquito (Culex gelidus, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex tritaeniorhynchus)
The Aedes aegypti is infamous for transmitting the dangerous chikungunya, the deadly dengue and Zika virus. Aedes Mosquitoes are black with white markings, and are day-biters. Anopheles Mosquitoes are brown with white or red spots on their wings. They usually bite during early night. In contrast, Culex Mosquitoes are light brown and bite after midnight.
