Meanwhile, health officials are appealing to all homeowners and individuals to keep their surroundings clean and reduce breeding sites such as old tires, tins, coconut shells, blocked drains and other water holding containers.

This, they argue is critical in reducing the mosquito population, and the threat of borne diseases.

The Ministry of Health is also seeking the public’s cooperation to ensure the effectiveness of the fogging campaign by opening up doors and windows thus allowing the fog to enter and kill the mosquitoes.

A special appeal is also being made for persons with respiratory difficulties to stay away from the fog or inform the fogging team of their health conditions. The fogging teams are also seeking Aviary farmers and Beekeepers support to avoid possible disruption in the exercise.

The Vector Control Division can be reached on telephone number 440-2095.
