Mosquitoes can transmit harmful diseases such as Dengue Fever and Japanese Encephalitis. To prevent mosquitoes from breeding in estates and construction sites we have adopted a range of mosquito control and prevention measures, including regular inspections and eradication of breeding spots, spraying mosquito larvicidal, installing mosquito catching apparatus, etc.
Please report to us any mosquito breeding blackspots you find within the vicinity of our public rental housing estates. Simply call the Housing Authority Hotline at 2712 2712 or send us an email. Our email address : firstname.lastname@example.org
