    fogging is scientifically proven to be a waste of time and at very best a temporary relief in addressing this problem. if a mosquito so much as sits under a leaf when you fog and the fog doesn’t directly touch it, it will survive and of course breed!
    how about educating the population on how to diminish breeding grounds for mosquitoes which would cost the (already broke) government a whole lot less and really benefit the people!
    fogging is useless!

    there is a course available called: Preventing the Zika Virus: Understanding and Controlling the Aedes Mosquito
