Singapore - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there any unusual problems with insects or other infestations in housing?

Ants, roaches, and geckos are all around - even in big fancy condos! Be careful and don’t leave food, crumbs, or water on your counters. - Mar 2022

Because Singapore is tropical, there is a continual ant problem. Long after humans are gone from the earth the ants will remain. Roaches can also be a problem if you leave food out and fail to spray repellent. - Aug 2015

Mosquitoes can carry dengue. Many wear mosquito patches. - Aug 2015

Occasionally you see a mosquito or roach. Pest control is a priority here, and there are hardly any bugs. Not many birds, either. - Apr 2012

Mosquitoes, but they are controled by fogging - Nov 2011

None. They are vigilant about spraying. I leave my balcony open 24 hours a day and have never had a bug in my house. We have some sugar ants inside but they are easy to get rid of with ant traps. - Mar 2010
