As part of its ongoing efforts to control and reduce the presence of the deadly aedes aegypti mosquito, the Ministry of Health’s Vector Control Unit will fog a number of districts in St. James and St. Peter next week.
The team will begin operations in St. James on Monday, June 11, when Holetown, Trents, Jamestown Park, Seaview, Sunset Crest, Sandy Lane, Molyneaux and the surrounding areas will be fogged.
The next day, Tuesday, June 12, fogging continues in St. James.?? This time Hoytes Village, Holders Hill, Haynesville Housing Area, Thorpes, Durants Village, Waterman’s Village and the neighbouring districts are scheduled to be fogged.
The exercise will continue on Wednesday, June 13, in St Peter when Maynards Housing Area, Maynards Development, Rose Hill, Benn Hill, Pleasant Hall, Benn Hill Woods, Mile and a Quarter and the environs will be targetted.
Fogging will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. each day and householders are asked to assist in the elimination of the aedes aegypti mosquito by opening their windows and doors to allow the fog to penetrate.
Persons with respiratory problems should protect themselves from inhaling the fog, while pedestrians and motorists are advised to proceed with caution when they encounter fogging operations on the street.
Parents are also advised to prevent their children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
