This week, Mr Chan, 42, a resident who lives in Dawson has some questions regarding mosquito breeding for us!
Hi MyQueenstown Team, I have read the newspapers last week and understood that several districts in Singapore such as Clementi West had numerous cases of dengue fever. I lived near Dawson Place and understood there were construction going on. At times, I would see choked puddles of water in the construction sites and I am worried that these places may be breeding sites for mosquitoes and my young children may be affected! What am I supposed to do?
The deadly Mosquitoes!
