I though they are mostly after (exhaled) carbon dioxide?the lynx wrote:Currently it is very hot season coupled with occasional rain. Perfect to create more breeding spots, without risk of running water unlike the previous rainy season where water receptacles just get run over and over. The current heat and humidity makes the development time shorter too. And also make people sweat more = easy homing signal for mozzies.
I must say, regarding the living place this is yet another good point for Bukit Batok - seldom any clusters around and if, 2-3 cases max typically disappearing within a week. When we lived in HV the clusters around were pretty frequent (10-20 cases) but what is right now would scare s**t out of me if it happened that time - pregnant wife and later a newborn.
