MIAMI.- With increasing heat and rain, mosquitoes they breed everywhere in the tropics and condado Miami-Dade begins fumigation, while giving advice on how to prevent the spread of tiny pests.
We started with a fumigation plan on Monday the 2nd in Hayali, Indian Creek, North Miami and North Miami Beach to kill mosquitoes and larvae.
If you see a fumigation truck driving, try to stay within 100 feet.
At an average temperature of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) and heavy rainfall from May to October, mosquitoes thrive and can transmit disease.
County officials, in the hands of Miami-Dade Mosquito Control, do not advise leaving stagnant water outdoors. That is, drain and cover any container that may collect rain to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
- If you go outside, try to cover exposed skin with repellent or clothing to avoid mosquito bites.
- Discard any unused items in your garden that may collect water.
- Clean the rain gutters to ensure smooth flow and drainage
- Check for leaking faucets and air conditioners that can collect water.
- Protect boats and cars with a tarpaulin that does not collect water
- Fill the holes in the trees with sand or other material
- Remove weeds and prune weeds
- Place larvae tablets made of Bti in ponds or fountains
- Use granular Bti on bromeliads
The county government has a network of more than 300 traps throughout the county that is used to monitor mosquito breeding.
A team of nearly 30 inspectors visits homes and commercial premises in search of mosquito breeding grounds to be eradicated.
