Something to think about - September 2005
ATTACK YOUR TERRACES! - By Shri Deepak Adsul (Insecticide Officer, BMC Mumbai)

Dear Friends,

I am involved in providing anti-malarial service to you. I would like to remove a common misunderstanding in the community regarding malaria. Mosquitoes never breed in gutters, waste water drains or filthy marshy sites. Mosquito eggs become adult in about 8-10 days in clean and constantly reviving or replenishing water bodies. It is very interesting to note that it breeds in man made containers only and even a small spoonful of clean water can be enough for a mosquito to lay her eggs.

In order to keep the mosquito’s away from you, we propose that we do not let them generate, instead of running after them in the air using a fogging machine.

I would like to appeal to all the learned citizens that they may help me in my mission by covering or removing from their building terraces, all odd articles like drums, buckets, plant saucers, discarded bottles, tins, coconut shells, tyres, scrapped machinery parts, etc. that can hold or are likely to hold rainwater.

I sincerely appeal, that if everyone takes care of your own terraces, it would be a great contribution in the anti-malarial mission to your local area.

Best regards,
Shri Deepak Adsul
Insecticide Officer – BMC Mumbai
