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 though they are mostly after (exhaled) carbon dioxide?

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.

I am happy to report that there is only a single dengue cluster and this with 2 cases only and within the whole island. The general No of cases is record low. As the weather is not that dry, I guess somebody have done a really good work (hope we are not that insecticidized as the side effect) Congratulation!
