To intensify the fight against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits dengue, zyka and chikungunya, six districts of Campo Grande will receive the ultra low volume (ULV) spray service, popularly known as fog, this Tuesday ( 1st).

The teams will be in the neighborhoods of Coronel Antonino, Centro, Vila Margarida, Pioneiros, São Conrado and Tiradentes. On each site, there will be a team from the CCEV (Coordination for the Fight against Vector Endemics) from Sesau (Municipal Secretariat of Health), and they will follow a previously established route.

For greater effectiveness of the insecticide, it is necessary for the resident to open doors and windows, so that the poison can reach the places where the mosquitoes are most likely to be.

Services begin at 4 p.m. and are scheduled to end at 10 p.m., and may be postponed or even canceled in the event of rain, wind, or fog, as such weather activities interfere with poison application.

The insecticide affects adult mosquitoes, preferably females, which are disease transmitters. Even so, it is possible that other species will be affected and therefore careful application of the poison is necessary.
