Social Distancing Calls for Longer Residuals
We know social distancing guidelines and reduced staffing can make it more difficult to achieve confident control of mosquitoes. In Minnesota, one field operations supervisor stated “The job is changing. They’re limiting contact, staggering start times and wearing masks. And there’s a reduction of about 16% in seasonal employees.”
Because mosquitoes don’t follow social distancing guidelines, control can’t stop. A District Health Director in Georgia says “Even though we are doing COVID-19 all day every day, it’s still mosquito season.” Due to COVID-19, some areas could have smaller staffs as people are used elsewhere and some will be behind schedule on applications. To help aid this problem, the products communities are using need to work right the first time and stand the test of time.
