A new mosquito production facility has opened at an industrial estate in Ang Mo Kio, and it aims to breed about five million Wolbachia-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes a week to counter the surge in dengue cases.

Speaking at the launch of the S$5 million facility on Monday (Dec 2), Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State for the Environment and Water Resources, said that there were close to 15,000 dengue cases this year so far, and 20 people had died from the disease.

Why grow more mosquitoes? If everyone takes an effort to kill the mosquitoes, it will be reduced. No wonder sometimes have to slap myself to kill the mosquitoes.

What is Wolbachia?

Wolbachia are extremely common bacteria that occur naturally in 60 per cent of insect species, including some mosquitoes, fruit flies, moths, dragonflies and butterflies.

Wolbachia are safe for humans and the environment. Independent risk analyses indicate that the release of Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes poses negligible risk to humans and the environment.
