Mosquito control

Our pest control contractor will be fogging the development on August 24, 2011 with a pesticide to reduce the presence of mosquitoes that are contributing to the present dengue fever outbreak. Open water will also be treated with a system to kill larvae. A further treatment will take place in the month of October.

Treatment will take place between the hours of 2:30am and 5:00am, the following guidelines should be observed by all residents:

  1. No persons and/or animals are to be outside during the fogging procedure treatment time.
  2. Close windows and doors during the fogging exercise, they should remain closed for 45 minutes after completion.
  3. Cover swimming pools and decorative water features.
  4. Place all pet feeding/watering bowls indoors.
  5. Turn off all fans and/or air conditioners or set them at exhaust.
  6. Persons and animals can go outside (if necessary) 45 minutes upon completion of the fogging activity. Note this is especially important for children, pregnant women and asthmatics.
  7. Rinse all household items/toys that were left outside before using them.
  8. Rinse all fruits and vegetables (that were in the garden/yard) thoroughly before consuming them.
  9. Note the product scheduled to be used does not have a residual therefore items 3, 4, 7 & 8 noted above are precautionary measures.

*** UPDATE ***

Due to hurricane Irene, as a precaution the fogging has been deferred for one week and will take place on August 31, 2011.

*** UPDATE ***

The fogging was completed as of the morning of Sep 1, 2011.

Pest control concerns

We have previously informed residents that we have expanded our pest control coverage by adding more rodent bait stations. The bait stations contain a block of poison that is skewered on to a spike located inside a compartment inside the bait station box. For safety reasons, they are designed to be tamper proof so that children and domestic animals cannot access the poison.

However, it has been brought to our attention that poison pellets (not used by the pest control contractor) have been placed in and around the bait stations. These are potentially hazardous if ingested and also undermines the safety precautions we have taken with our pest control. Should anybody witness poison being placed on any common areas, please report it immediately to the Association which reserves the right to bring criminal charges against offenders.
