Hernandez Fuentes reminded the population to take into consideration the fumigation schedules that begin at 03:00 hours and in the evening shift from 18:40 hours, the work concludes until the routes indicated have full coverage.
He called on the population to leave their windows open when they hear the vehicles with fumigation equipment circulating through their streets, thus allowing the insecticide to penetrate inside their homes. “We have carried out home visits to different homes in the region. During these visits, our specialized teams have carried out larval control actions, as well as fumigation treatments using motorized backpacks and car-mounted equipment,” he said.
It is important to highlight that these preventive measures are fundamental to avoid the proliferation of mosquitoes and, consequently, prevent and control dengue. By eradicating potential breeding sites in domestic spaces, we are actively contributing to protecting the health of families and the entire community.
He explained that Yucatan is a state that, due to its tropical climate conditions, the presence of mosquitoes increases during the rainy season, which is why we are not lowering our guard in the campaigns to eliminate breeding sites inside homes, and in coordination with the municipal authorities, there has been a good participation of the citizens.
Finally, he pointed out that the SSY will continue working to eradicate dengue from our community. However, it is equally necessary the joint effort of all the inhabitants, adopting preventive measures in our homes such as the use of insecticides, repellent against the insect and contributing to the control of potential mosquito breeding sites, keeping their yards clean.
