Heavy rainfall in Barbuda recently caused a number of catchment areas to become the target of mosquito breeding sites

And as a result, the Vector Control Unit in Antigua traveled to Barbuda to work along with the Barbuda Team to conduct an intensive 4-day mosquito control operation.

Julienne Mannix, Acting Principal Public Health Inspector says, during the 4-day period, various water catchments including ponds, maul holes, wells, and cisterns were treated with larvicides and guppies to reduce the larvae and pupae count.

She says in addition, adulticides were used to reduce the abundance of adult mosquitoes which plagued the residents in Barbuda.
