Mosquito back story
Mosquitoes, where do we even begin. Everyone knows the irritating high pitched whine they make.
Mosquitoes are more than just irritating pests that buzz near your ears and give you an itch. They are far more sinister than that. Depending on the type of mosquito, there is a possibility of carrying dengue or malaria with them when they bite.
How to prevent mosquito breeding?
Mosquitoes breed by laying eggs in stagnant water. They don’t need a lot of water to start breeding. A tiny bit of water is all they need.
Most common places where mosquitoes breed includes buckets, rims of overturned buckets, plant puts, especially those with the water tray under it.
1 proactive way of preventing mosquito breeding is driving them out by mosquito fogging.
Types of mosquitoes
There are different species of mosquitoes, each with their own characteristics and dangers of spreading different diseases.
Instead of focussing on the species, it’s more effective to know the gender of the mosquitoes. The female mosquitoes are the ones that bites and feed on blood to reproduce. For those interested in the lifecycle and have forgotten your primary school science, you can refer to the NEA site for more information.
The males, on the other hand, prefer plant nectar and water. This information is important to the strategy that you’ll need to engage in your mosquito wipe out plan.
Generally, if you see mosquitoes, it’s safe to say that they are the female mosquitoes that are out for blood to reproduce.
Mosquito elimination methods
The best way to eliminate mosquitoes is to stop them from breeding in the first place by eradicating all stagnant water sources.
Plants that claim to kill mosquitoes are usually useless as it only kills the male mosquitoes because remember, male mosquitoes are on a plant-based diet.
If you have a such a plant at home and see dead mosquitoes, those are “harmless” male mosquitoes that are spreading the diseases or biting you.
However, there are plants with certain scents that repel mosquitoes but they are not entirely foolproof.

Misconceptions About Mosquito Fogging
Mosquito fogging usually does not kill mosquitoes instantly. Most of the time they are being “chased” away and this creates an area without mosquitoes.
The most effective way to do fogging is to have a large enough area of properties, eg: a row of condos to fog simultaneously, this coordinated effort will leave the mosquitoes with little place to hide and actually gets killed.
Coordinating multiple fogging can be difficult and impractical so usually, each property owner will carry out mosquito fogging at their own convenient time, thus reducing the effectiveness of mosquito fogging efforts.
