Mosquito Breeding Grounds
I remember the time when we first moved into our neighbourhood 2 years ago in July 2009. At that time, there was relatively not many mosquitoes. Then came the earthworks which commenced somewhere around the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 to prevent mudslides from flowing down the road into our neighbourhood housing area below (D'Villa vicinity).
Since the construction of the retention ponds to prevent mudlfows whenever it rains heavily, our neighbourhood has been besiged by the relentless growth & multiplication of mosquitoes. I believe the retention pond in the construction site at the hillside next to our neighbourhood (pls. see photo above marked in red) has caused the mosquitoes numbers to multiply many many fold. This is causing worries & anxieties to many of us about the spread of Aedes mosquitoes.
Maybe someone need to complain to the local authorites (MBPJ) Health Division about this nuiisance mosquito breeding ground to arrest and contain this health menace!
