Health and engineering officials of ICF deserves a pat for their work towards bringing down the mosquito problem. They are working for this for the past few days. They are taking various measures towards this at four residential colonies of ICF employees and the factory premises for the past few days.
Larvicidal spray is being carried out covering all the rain water stagnated area like open drains to kill the mosquitoes in the larva stage itself.
A separate team is being organized by involving skilled operators for adulticide operation, handling thermal fogging machines to cover the outside residential areas like backyard of the quarters and inside the factory premises, to eradicate the grown up mosquitoes.
These activities will be carried out in a continuous and in safe manner ensuring no harm to either employees/colony residents, till the life cycle of the mosquito is contained. Stagnated water is being cleaned in all the places and also bushes are being trimmed.
Awareness program is being conducted by the ICF scouts and Guides by issuing pamphlets about dengue awareness among the colony members and public. All the activities are being carried out as per the guidelines of Directorate of National Vector borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP).
