1. Identify Your Pest

Mosquitoes can be easily known as the deadliest pest in the world. With Dengue and Zika Virus disease on the rise in Indonesia, mosquitoes are labeled as a top pest that pose serious health risks to all.

Swollen, red and itchy bumps on your skin and you have not noticed the 3 to 4 bites that have already long formed. Attacking you by surprise is just the world's deadliest pest - the Mosquito. But hey! Which type of mosquito species has just bitten you? If you are ever lucky to catch sight of the flying insect that has just bitten you, you could identify the type of mosquito and the dangers it comes with.

  • The Aedes Mosquito (carrier for Dengue & Zika virus): Black and white markings on legs and body; bite at dawn and dusk
  • The Anopheles Mosquito (carrier for Malaria): Has pale and dark markings on its wings; bite more at night
  • The Culex Mosquito (carrier for Jap B Encephalitis): Dull in colour; has pale and dark markings on its wings; bite more at night

But take no chances in eliminating this deadly pest whether they are Aedes, Anopheles or Culex mosquitoes. .

Did you know? Mosquitoes are attracted to heat and carbon dioxide, and tend to bite people who have just exercised. Bigger people attract more mosquitoes because they produce higher carbon dioxide and lactic acid.

Knowing the signs of mosquito problem is important to control an infestation that could get out of control when breeding conditions and our local tropical hot and wet weather are especially favorable. Larvae or pupae growing in stagnant water in drains, flower pot plates, discarded tyres and other receptables, gulley traps, roof gutters are signs of an infestation and all provide mosquitoes a good place to breed and hide in.
