No spraying against mosquitoes during rain

Chikungunya1WILLEMSTAD – The spraying actions against mosquitoes is halted during rain. This was reported by the Ministry of Health, Environment and Nature in a press release. The neighborhoods that were supposed to be sprayed during the weekend, especially Sunday, will be sprayed today. This is only if it doesn’t rain.

The chemical agent which is used against the mosquito contains the substance Pyrethrin or one that is related to it.

Utensils, such as plates and cups need to be covered, also food.

Pets should be protected, especially fish and turtles. These animals are vulnerable to the product. Aquarium, too, must therefore be closed, so that the substance Pyrethrin does not come into the water. Also pet food and water bowls should be covered or immediately washed after spraying.
