Prevention & Treatment
- Oil Based Fogging
Outdoor fogging surrounding premises. In comparison to diesel-based fogging, thermal fogging solutions are water-based, which lowers carbon emissions, is a more environmentally friendly choice, is safer, and has no smell.
Used in locations where there is a chance of larvae breeding to prevent further infestations. Larvicide is used to kill mosquito larvae in stagnant water areas including storm drains, small ponds, and swimming pools.
In Malaysia, mosquitoes are viewed as obtrusive pests that leave red, unpleasant bite marks on our skin. Despite their diminutive size, these insects are unquestionably the worst.
Many diseases, including dengue, malaria, and zika, are conveyed by these vectors—carriers of dangerous viruses and bacteria. In actuality, mosquitoes are to blame for approximately 80,000 dengue illnesses and 170 fatalities annually. The possibility exists that the presence of mosquitoes could endanger you and your staff.
Types of Mosquitoes
Aedes mosquito bites are most common during periods of changing light intensity (after sunrise and before sunset). Adults are marked in black and white.
From egg to mature stage, it takes 6 to 8 days for Aedes mosquitoes to breed. Its whole metamorphosis starts from egg to larva to pupa to adult. The larvae are perched 45 degrees off the water’s surface. Its egg has the colour of black and resembles a rugby ball in shape.
The Aedes mosquitoes likes to live in places like a container breeder, especially man-made containers with clean water. They prefer darker colours like black and red, and can fly short distance (50 – 100m).
The mosquito species Anopheles is the carrier of malaria. Its entire metamorphosis is from egg, larval, and pupa to adult, and its life cycle lasts between 6 and 10 days from egg to adult stage. They favour environments with clear, unpolluted water. These mosquitoes bite primarily at night and rest both inside and outside (depends on species). They favour deeper colours, and a female can produce 50 to 150 eggs after one blood meal.
Culex mosquitoes are the main vector for Japanese B – Encephalitis. The adult has thorax, legs and veins on the wings are always covered with brown scales. It is dull in colour. The tip of the abdomen is always blunt.
Culex mosquitoes take 6-10 days from egg to reach maturity stage. A full metamorphosis begins from egg to larva to pupa to adult. Their habitat is they primarily breed in drains and filthy stagnant water.
Their biting patterns typically involve biting at night and taking indoor breaks before and after a blood meal. They may occasionally sleep outside and they are long-haul travellers.
Signs of Mosquitoesinfestation
Some indicators that mosquitoes have infested your property:
Mosquitoes frequently produce that obnoxious, high-pitched buzzing sound. Bite symptoms, which can range from slightly annoying to severely irritated and swollen, are a dead giveaway. The male mosquitoes feed on nectar and other pleasant substances, but only the female mosquito bites people.
Standing water, such as water bowls and water trays from house plants, attracts the adults, who then lay their eggs there. They could be seen loitering in regions that are dark and shaded. In addition, larvae of mosquitoes in still water can be found.
