  1. Are you aware of what circumstances (upsurge in mosquito breeding, increased cases of Dengue Fever, precautionary measures, whatever) that might have necessitated this round of fogging?


  2. As far as I know, it’s because of heavier rains at this time, an annual event

  3. Thanks Airbourne. It is just that I am keeping a close eye on Dengue in the region so when I read your blog post, I became curious as to what is happening in Barbados right now.


  4. We were fogged this week in St Elizabeth Village, well the woods were…………all the houses on our side of the road were’nt because of the wind, and when we asked for them to bring the hose to fog under the house we were told they couldn’t do that (they did last time….)
