Complaints regarding mosquitoes and biting midges have been increasing with the heat and rain. We have asked Food and Environmental Hygiene Department to strengthen control operations near bus stops, as well as drainage channels along pavement and slopes. Do take your own prevention measures and apply mosquito repellent when you go outdoors.
Following a successful pilot scheme, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department has placed multiple mosquito trapping devices in Pokfulam. These devices kill adult mosquitoes and prevent larvae from developing. You may click here for a video introduction and here for the patent developer's website.
With the summer and humidity the mosquitoes and biting midges are back. We are working with government departments on strengthening mosquito control operations at bus stops, as well as the drainage channels along footways and slopes. Do take your own prevention measures and apply mosquito repellent when you go outdoors.
Humidity and heat will soon bring back mosquitoes and biting midges. Our focus for mosquito control are the places where people need to wait for public transport, and drainage channels along footways. Do take your own prevention measures and apply mosquito repellent when you go outdoors.
