All Owners & Occupants
The National Environment Agency (NEA) records show that on average about 2 out of every 100 home premises checked by them have been found to breed mosquitos. The number of dengue fever cases has increased from 4,788 in 2003 to 8,597 in 2018 . It is the highest number of dengue fever cases recorded in Singapore over the last 10 years.
With effect from 1 Feb 2005, homeowners or occupants found breeding mosquitoes for the first time will be given a $100 fine instead of a warning letter by the National Environment Agency (NEA); for subsequent offences, a fine of $200 will be levied for each offence. By imposing the revised enforcement penalties, NEA hopes to send a stronger message to urge the public to help keep the environment and homes free of mosquitoes.
The NEA is now working with condominium managements to put in place a more structured and regular programme to search and destroy mosquito breeding sites in their estates. With the support of the estate management, they hope to reduce the number of breeding found in condominiums. Residents of condominiums however will still need to take all necessary measures to prevent breeding in their homes. They would like to urge all homeowners and occupants to play their part to prevent mosquito breeding and turn dengue awareness into action, and make it their weekly habit to get rid of stagnant water in their homes.
Appended below are some suggestions to prevent mosquito breeding:-
