The Ministry of Health Wellness and the Environment’s Department of the Environment (DOE) in Antigua and Barbuda has announced a community-led project to make affordable mosquito traps available to the public.
This initiative is part of our commitment to preparing communities for climate change challenges.
These innovative traps, provided by participating community groups, will help reduce mosquito populations and contribute to building climate resilience in local communities with the sale proceeds.
To create a more climate-resilient Antigua and Barbuda, the DOE has partnered with community groups to make these cost-effective mosquito traps accessible to everyone.
These traps are essential for mosquito control and significantly mitigate the risks associated with mosquito-borne diseases, especially given the changing climate conditions.
To support this project, we are appealing to the general public, including businesses, to purchase mosquito traps from participating community groups and distribute them among their employees.
By buying these traps, you protect your loved ones and invest in a sustainable future for Antigua and Barbuda.
The DOE has already distributed over 8,000 mosquito traps to government workers, community groups, and institutions.
These traps have been highly effective in reducing the reliance on chemical interventions, making them an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution for mosquito control.
By supporting this initiative, you actively contribute to a greener, healthier, and climate-ready Antigua and Barbuda. Join us in this collective effort to create a more resilient and sustainable future for Antigua and Barbuda.
